Just to make sure ...
- One Server with Wine and 350 Clients?
- Every Client has a local Printer?
- OS and Printing-System on the Clients?
- OS and Printing-System on the Server?

winspool.drv (wine) loads all local Printer (from CUPS and
from /etc/printcap) every Time, a new Process is attached to the DLL.

wspool.c: DllMain  ->  info.c:WINSPOOL_LoadSystemPrinters(void)

Thats not fast/useful for such huge number of printers.

Many Printing-Functions are incomplete and even fixed to WINEPS.DRV
I'm working on this in my free time.
