Printing from FC11 to Windows7: SPNEGO login failed invalid parameter

I am running FC11. Samba config as follows:
smbd and nmbd are working, though they weren't auto started. I don' know if that matters, but I started them manually.

I want to print to an HP directly attached to a windows 7 system.

I am using KDE and attempts to use the 'add printer' via 'windows network printer via samba' get me to the windows 7 client, which prompts me for a password.

I have an account on the windows 7 system, and have enabled the guest account there as well.

However, login attempts failed no matter what account I use or passwords.

Here is the output from 'smbclient' when I try to list the config as 'matt' (my login on the windows7 box):
#smbclient -L //sphene
Enter matt's password:
session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0

If I try this without entering a password, I do get some information:

#smbclient -L //sphene
Enter matt's password:
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[WORKGROUP] OS=[Windows 7 Professional 7600] Server=[Windows 7 Professional 6.1]

If I run smbclient with a higher debug level, there's some interesting message about SPNEGO in the output
Doing spnego session setup (blob length=336)
SPNEGO login failed: Invalid parameter
session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0
So, my question is:

What account should I use when trying to add the printer via System->Administration->Printers?

matt doesn't work (with or without a password)
I tried guest with no password, still no luck.

It seems like the FC11 system (Fafnir) and the win7 system are communicating, but the invalid parameter might be the crux of the problem.
