I suspect that you are using a 'client driver' to print via the 'raw'
printer on cups and the upgrade ended up changing /etc/cups/mime.types
and /etc/cups/mime.convs

check out...
http://samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/CUPS-printing.html#id2631669

for information on how to print using client driver and enable 'raw'
printing support on your cups shared printer
