thanks for caring about the problem. Yes, so  far nobody has reacted
to the report, and yes, the problem does still exist, no magical
fixing or auto-healing.

On the contrary, when installing Debian "Squeeze" on our systems. I
added printers ot the type Lexmark T 650 (they dropped the 'Optra',
but these are direct descendants of the Optra T Series) to it. They
show the exact same (erroneous) behaviour.

To summarize: We have (Lexmark) printers with two trays in addition
to the manual/multipurpose one. Tray1 set as default. Selecting
'nothing'/default, 'Tray1', or 'Tray2' all print from actual tray one
(Tray1). To get paper from tray two (Tray2) you have to select

My guess is an 'off by one'-error: Default and 'Tray1' select the
default tray, 'Tray2' actually selects tray one, 'Tray3' selects
tray two etc.

It would be nice to get this fixed. I'm willing to provide further
information, should there be any questions left, and to test a fixed
