Default printer changes to PDF-Creator

We are using iPrint installed on a OES2 Suse Enterprise Linux server (version 10). We are having problems with our users keeping their default printer. Next to our iPrint printers we are also using PDF-creator, so users can create PDF-files. The PDF-Creator printer is a "real" windows printer and for some reason it sometimes get's promoted to default printer when a user has logged out and then logs in to the network. This is anoying because the user has to change this first before the iPrint printers can be used.
Is there a way to avoid this problem? I have to mention we are using ±30 iPrint printers, so a policy which set's the default printer to a user is not a solution.
Is there a (free) utility we can use to solve this problem?

What client OS and what iPrint client version are you using?
Are you dynamically distributiong your printers somehow or are the
printers preinstalled?
What rights do your users have to their workstations?

If you are using Novell Client also, then the iPrint Client Management
feature can be a possible solution.
