Samba/Cups printing error caused by /etc/cups/mime.types

My Samba printing suddenly stops because a cups file I have edited to allow samba printing (/etc/cups/mime.types) keeps getting rewritten to its orginal version. I orginally fixed this problem by following the instructions for allowing raw file printing. This requires editing two files:
/etc/cups/mime.types by uncommenting the line "application/octet-stream"
/etc/cups/mime.convs by uncommenting the line "application/octet-stream application/vnd.cups-raw 0 -"

Lastly, restart CUPS and SAMBA like this:
/etc/init.d/cups restart
/etc/init.d/smb restart

This will work for a day or two and then /etc/cups/mime.types reverts to its "commented out" original version. Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

Here are my SAMBA error logs:
[2006/05/23 23:01:45, 0] smbd/server.c:main(798) smbd version 3.0.14a-2 started. Copyright Andrew Tridgell and the Samba Team 1992-2004

Here are my CUPS error logs:

[23/May/2006: 23:01:45-0400] Hint: Do you have the raw file printing rules enabled?
