Description ewhitelaw 1999-04-05 03:24:30 UTC
lpr-0.31-4 (RH5.1) printing to lpr-0.33-1 (RH5.0) doesn't
work if remote host doesn't not have user account for
client.

lpd log shows:
Apr  2 17:55:12 star lpd[31169]: can't find user - can't
fork

This occurs regardless of rs: flag in printcap.  Printing is
fine when accounts match (root<->root, etc.).
(This is in Debian Bug List also)
