This comment has additional information about the conditions under which
leaking occurred and other odd behavior.

As mentioned earlier, there was initially little packet activity.  I discovered
I was unable to print a test page at all, with no obvious indication in the
logs of why not.  I believe this was because an earlier page had been printed
from a different account on the laptop; we have run into this problem
repeatedly, though not repeatably.

By restarting samba and the Vista print spooler service (it may have been the
2nd that was key) I was able to restore printing.  packets were quiet until I
printed a test page.  There was a flurry of exchanges, lasting perhaps a few
minutes after the page printed.  Things went quiet for a few minutes, and then,
for no obvious reason, they started up again and the server process started

After all this I shutdown server and spooler, and performed the steps described
in the preceding upload.  The behavior was slightly different, in that the
rapid packet exchanges started as soon as I opened the printer (I think I had
tried that previously).
