Description of problem:
Over the last two weeks we have had a few apparently random incidents where a print request has been sent and the report has been queued multiple times. The number of times the requested document has been queued has ranged anywhere from 6 to 60 times. This has happened for different documents and for different print queues on this server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Submit a print job
2. Walk to the printer
3. Count the number of copies
Actual Results: cups should only generate one copy, but multiple copies are produced intermittently.
Expected Results: only one copy should be printed.
This bug seems very similar to the behavior described in bug 138123, but since this is occurring on RHEL4 I am submitting a separate bug.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux shipped with cups-1.1.22-0.rc1.9, and has since been
updated to cups-1.1.22-0.rc1.9.6.
Have you entered the wrong version number in the "Version-Release number of
selected component" field above? What does 'rpm -q cups' say?
My mistake, this issue is on a rhel3 install. The cups version is correct, per
the output of rpm -q (/var/log/rpmpkgs frm sysreport). I will post this under
138123, and try the fixed packages provided there.
