  Windows clients cannot connect to shared printers

Bug description:
  Since installing 12.04 I can no longer connect my windows XP clients to my laser printers on the Ubuntu system using samba. 
  It works on 11.10 using the exact same smb.conf file.  
  I can see the printers from the windows clients, I can select it, I install the drivers locally from the windows pc.  When I click next I get the message "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly or the specified printer has lost its connection to the sever". 

  This is a deal breaker for me.
