Issue resurfaced with LPR version LPRng 3.7.4-22

When I tell the printtool to reset the LPR (Via the pulldown menu), It reports
that the lpr deamon was reset correctly. If I then try to run the tests, I get a

I went to a text console and tried to '/etc/init.d/lpr stop ; /etc/init.d/lpr
start' manualy. Lpr, the first time I tried this, Segfaulted my machine. Now, it
complains on not having a config for my printer.

The printer I have is an Epson Stylus Color 740, USB connection. If I run a
'/usr/games/fortune > /dev/usb/lp0', It prints out a fortune for me.

This was last tested on the Wolverine build. (which is where the LPRng 3.7.4-22
came from.

cannot reproduce crashes with LPRng-3.7.4-22, but found nasty problems in
printconf's magicfilter copy. The relevant fixes are in printconf-0.2.15
