Default cupsaddsmb fails -- unable to share print drivers from samba

I am running dapper with all updates on a generic wintel pc. I have set up a simple samba server with cups to share an attached printer with windoze clients (they authenticate against a different samba pdc) Cupsaddsmb fails with the following error:
Code:
Unable to copy Windows 2000 printer driver files (1)!
Running command: smbclient //localhost/print$ -N -A /var/spool/cups/tmp/44cb9359ab2bb -c 'mkdir W32X86;put /var/spool/cups/tmp/44cb9354030f8 W32X86/HPofficejet.ppd;put /usr/share/cups/drivers/ps5ui.dll W32X86/ps5ui.dll;put /usr/share/cups/drivers/pscript.hlp W32X86/pscript.hlp;put /usr/share/cups/drivers/pscript.ntf W32X86/pscript.ntf;put /usr/share/cups/drivers/pscript5.dll W32X86/pscript5.dll'

my smb.conf is:

Code:
[global]
        workgroup = fpig
        netbios name = sara-desk
        server string = lan printer server
        hosts allow = 192.168.1.
        security = share
        load printers = yes
        printing = cups
        printcap name = cups

[share1]
        path = /sharedstuff
        comment = files for everyone
        read only = no
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = yes

[printers]
        comment = All Printers
        path = /var/spool/samba
        browseable = yes
        printable = yes
        writable = no
        guest ok = yes

[print$]
        comment = Printer Drivers
        path = /var/lib/samba/printers
        browseable = yes
        guest ok = no
        read only = yes
        write list = root
the /var/lib/samba/printers directory structure is as follows:
ls -lR /var/lib/samba/printers
/var/lib/samba/printers:
total 8
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 2006-07-11 05:48 W32X86
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 2006-07-11 05:48 WIN40

/var/lib/samba/printers/W32X86:
total 0

/var/lib/samba/printers/WIN40:
total 0

the cups drivers were downloaded from the cups website and installed with the included makefile to /usr/share/cups/drivers. That directory is as follows (windows ps drivers added also):
ls -lR /usr/share/cups/drivers/
/usr/share/cups/drivers/:
total 1432
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 803 2006-07-26 15:25 cups6.inf
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 72 2006-07-26 15:25 cups6.ini
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 12568 2006-07-26 15:25 cupsps6.dll
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 13672 2006-07-26 15:25 cupsui6.dll
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 129024 2006-07-26 15:45 ps5ui.dll
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 455168 2006-07-26 15:45 pscript5.dll
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 26038 2006-07-26 15:45 pscript.hlp
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 792644 2006-07-26 15:45 pscript.ntf

I don't understand where cupsaddsmb is trying to create the \W32X86 directory or why there is a permission problem.
