Then it seems to me that cups or system-config-printer are missing the
dep, not control-center.

$ FILES=`rpm -ql system-config-printer | grep 'py$'` ; for i in `rpm -ql
samba-client | grep /bin/` ; do BASENAME=`basename $i` ; grep -l
$BASENAME $FILES && echo $i ; done

Looks like system-config-printer might be responsible for the missing
dep. Would be better if that wasn't needed though.

Eew, seems to be in cups itself.
do_samba_command() is a cups function that is used almost *everywhere* inside that bloody thing that simply forks smbclient or similar command line utilities to get what it wants. Horrible.

I'll file a bug.
