did you let samba compile with cups support? (its set by default)
If so, rebuild samba checking the box for nocups "without CUPS"
and try printing again, most likely it will work perfectly.
There appears to be a bug in the way samba handles the cups support, my
guess is it defaults the print/lprm/lppause/lpresume commands
differently then it does when you specify nocups.
