What a user sees when he/she tries to see the available printers

The attachment shows the green progress bar atop the 'Printers and Faxes' window that seems to be searching forever without finding available peripherals listing.

This problem is only present for a Samba-PDC user... If I logon as a local machine user I do not get this problem.

Requested network capture

Here you go... I captured the network traffic using Wireshark while I made several attempts at seeing 'printers and peripherals'...

Hello Luc,

I read your bugreport and it seems to me this is not a hang!

the Control-Panel does not work as expected.

you have to click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"

But there is a other problem, published printers are not visible.
Only published printers from Windowsprintserver are displays.
It seems there the windowsprintserver has pushed some additional properties pushed into the AD
