Version: 3.8.15-1
Severity: grave


Unstable's lprng has a serious problem with print-queueing. It is talked
about in newsgroups thread msgid <1991Aug1.042048.29740@ccu1.aukuni.ac.nz>

| The insidious thing is that the bug only takes effect when several
| files sent from the same user *and* host so that they appear one after
| the other in the queue. Since the printer is not used heavily the
| problem was not noticed until several weeks after the patch was applied.

Same occured at my system. Jobs just disappear like snow when there's
more than one queued job of the same user from the same host.

I installed 3.8.10-1 and the problem was gone. 

There's another thing, 3.8.15-1 does not accept:
| $ lpr file.ps
It just sits idle after doing that. With 3.8.15-1 you have to:
| $ cat file.ps | lpr
before it actually pics up the job.


| If you want to insult someone, walk a mile in his shoes. If you still
| want to insult him; you'll be a mile away, AND have his shoes!
