Samba/Win2K printing ignores print quantity

I setup a print on my Linux server with Samba and CUPS. The printer is attached via TCP/IP. The problem is that in the Windows client I say "print 2 pages," and it always prints just 1!

The Linux server is Trustix 2.2 with CUPS 1.1.23. The client is Windows 2000 Pro. The printer is a brand new HP 2420dn connected via JetDirect to the server.

On the Windows system if I print directly to the printer (bypassing the Linux server), the quantity works OK.

Here are some interesting parts of my smb.conf:

printcap name = cups
printing = cups
cups options = "raw"
        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        browseable = no
        guest ok = yes
        writable = no
        printable = yes

        comment = HP 2420dn shared laser printer with duplex
        printable = yes
        path = /var/spool/samba_printer/bree
        public = no
        guest ok = yes
        printer admin = root, @srmadminfolder

        comment = Printer Drivers
        path = /etc/samba/drivers
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = no
        read only = yes
        write list = root, @srmadminfolder
        admin users = root, @srmadminfolder
        create mask = 0644
        directory mask = 0755
