When using cupsaddsmb to add a printer, it uses the short printer name for the name of the driver (Long Printer name).

This results in messages from windows such as "You have successfully installed your printername" instead of "You have successfully installed your HP Laserjet 4050"

We don't have a "long printer name", just the queue name.
