Problems with terminal services printing after latest Windows 7 update

I have several laptops that connect to a server running Server 2008 using Terminal services. The printing to local printers was working fine until the latest update to Windows 7. Then one by one the laptops were unable to print. Other computers running XP continue to work fine.

The local printer show up on the server but when you try to print they get sent to the queue where they evaporate. No printing. Any one have any ideas?

The problem appears to be related to the KB2505438 update. When that update is deleted printing resumes from the server. When it is re-installed printing stops. The solution is to not install the KB250438 update.
