[K12OSN] Printers on thin clients problem

I am running 4.0.1, with about 110 thin clients in our district.  Local 
printing is working great (we're sharing samsung 1740 laser printers) -- 
but every few days, the printers stop working.  Sometimes there is an 
error page that prints out, sometimes not.   It always happens in the 
middle of the school day, and although rebooting the thin client solves 
the problem, it's not really feasible at any given time to do so.  This 
is especially true since it's usually the classroom across the hall 
trying to print, since we have to share printers among classrooms.  Is 
there a known issue with local printing?  Anyone have any ideas about 
how to debug the problem?  Any chance upgrading to 4.2 would help?
