Okay, got it all working. The problem was that the smbpasswd file got corrupted. A new one gets created automatically if the old file is deleted or missing (e.g., smbpasswd -a name).
Thanks to John Martzouco for the kill code. I wonder why there's no 'init.d/smb restart' code with the extention.
note: I don't know how others are handling this, but I'm overwriting the /etc/samba/smb.conf file with a wrapper when loading the unc.
edit: also the /usr/bin/smbpasswd.
EDIT: Samba networked HP deskjet worked flawlessly. The gimp drivers did the trick, although I'll experiment with Juanito's extentions a bit see if there's anything specific to the HPdeskjet940C. (note: the HP stp/pcl-895 gimp drivers already work very well).
EDIT2...damn...how did I miss juanito's sambi.uci extension, with all the documentation!!!!!!
