[Samba] Problems printing with samba 3.5.2

Ok, I finally deployed samba 3.5.2 (upgrading from 3.0.11) on the real server after testing for a while in virtualbox.
There's a strange problem with printing: sometimes an application gives an error printing (of course the error message is meaningless, this is windows after all) and/or the job gets lost in transit.
After that stopping and restarting the local print spool service solves the problem for a while.
This happened on a couple of xp clients but I fear tomorrow I'll see more of those :-( so I'll have the chance to capture more detailed logs.

I see these messages in /var/log/messages, don't know if they're related to the problem at hand (I oubt it):
