CUPS printers not available until Samba is restarted

I am running a little server for my home network based on Debian Woody. It´s been running fine for nearly a year until I recently added another printer.

The configuration now is:

Samba 2.2.3a-12.3
CUPS 1.1.14-5
HP Laserjet on /dev/lp0
Epson Stylus Color on /dev/lp1

The Laserjet printer was available to Window$ PCs and worked from the beginning. I then recently installed the Epson Stylus Color on /dev/lp1 and added it via the CUPS web interface.

Now I have the problem that both printers are not available until I do

/etc/init.d/samba restart

after the box is booted. CUPS must be running because I can access the web interface and print the test pages on both printers before and after I restart Samba. I guess it could have something to do with a wrong boot order, but that would really puzzle me, as the system was running fine with just one printer installed...

Can somebody shed some light on this?
