Samba - printed jobs still show in Win queue

Samba works fine as follows:

Win2K clients--->> Whitebox Linux --> Tosh printer (Parallel 1)

EXCEPT that very recently (possibly after a yum update?), on the Win2K machines all previous print jobs are shown in the print queue even though they have printed successfully and been removed from the queue - for example, the print queue on my WIn2K desktop for the Tosh shows 8 jobs 'waiting' to be printed but they were all completed during the last 4 hours.

Around the same time, an Epson Stylus C62 on a USB port stopped accepting jobs from the Windows world, but prints Ok from the Linux box itself.

I have not changed anything recently that I think would have affected printing so does anyone have any ideas - I have hunted around here and without much luck.

Sorry, it's such a long time ago now and we moved all our servers to CentOS many years ago so I have no idea how the problem was solved.
