I've spent something like 10 hours now (debugging from 1000 miles away), and the other party has gone to bed. I just now got my printers to rename.
This works for renaming the printer (where the heck is the name stored??) (var is on an different file system, so my path is different) symbolic links screw things up, by the way.

I just did an apt-get update, and can confirm I am on the latest samba/cups with 12.04.1. I used the 64bit server install CD.

This bug still exists.
This is bull. I could be developing open source, instead, I'm trying to get samba to print.
