Yeah, the offending document makes it all the way through samba, gets
handed off to cups and seems to work. except the printer hangs the job
and any other jobs are queued and never print until the offending job is
removed. I can't find anything in the logs of cups or samba that show an
error. I've turned up verbosity on both to insane levels of logging.

it could be memory related on the printer side as scott said. Is there a
way to tell what the size of the page is being sent to the printer (page
by page?). I will find out how much memory is in the printer shortly.
