I recently had a problem printing from XP through a samba shared
printer after a Samba upgrade.

I had to add the 'use client driver = yes' option to the global
section. I was driven to this solution by a unique log message (that
I can't find anymore). What do you logs for the failing workstation say?

As far as the shared directory is concerned, check your create mask
