Well, at least in the copy I have WINSPOOL_EnumPrinters has this:

    /* PRINTER_ENUM_DEFAULT is only supported under win9x, we behave like NT */
    if(dwType == PRINTER_ENUM_DEFAULT)
	return TRUE;

ie it's a no-op. Bear in mind I don't have any printers installed, the
only driver available is the Wine PostScript driver so neither CUPs nor
printcap is set up.

thanks -mike
