This sounds more like a udev problem, and somewhat like what I'm
having right now with lp0.  It just stopped working:

   (0) heretic /etc/udev_ checkpc
   Warning - cannot chdir to '//var/spool/lpd' as UID 1000, GRP 1000 - 'Permission denied'
   Warning -  bad directory - //var/spool/lpd/lp
   Warning -   Printer_DYN 'lp0' spool dir '/var/spool/lpd/lp' needs fixing

   (0) heretic [root] /root_ checkpc
   Warning - lp0: cannot stat lp device '/dev/lp0' - No such file or directory

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
