Description Lutieri G. B. 2007-03-13 09:51:37 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #2220 +++

I'm having this problem under samba 3.0.24 running on FC5 x86.  Some printers, not all, show jobs in the Windows print queue.  The jobs show in Cups as completed  and are not in the Samba print spool at all. I've installed samba via yum. I run: rm -f /var/log/spool/samba/c* but don't solve the problem.

I have the same problem.  Printer queue in windows fills up.  If I delete the tdb file in /var/lib/samba/printing then the queue is emptied until I print again.

This one is fixed in 3.0.31 and will be fixed in 3.2.1.
A patch for 3.2.0 can be found at https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5635.

Please re-try with 3.0.31 and re-open the bug report if it is still an issue for you.

Thanks for the bug report!

I have tried the 3.0.31/3.0.28/3.0.26a versions compiled in opensuse build service and they work perfectly.
