Whenever I send a job to the printer, I get a blank page at the end and a
stack dump at the printer. This happens with RC3 (qa0401). I am seeing it
both at work, where I spool jobs to an NT4 Server (DEClaser 5100, aka LN09)
and at home, where I am printing to an HP LaserJet 4L. The error
information at work is

error name: dictstackunderflow
command:   end
errorinfo: errorinfo not displayable

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. lpr -P:lp0 <file>

Actual Results:  entire file printed, followed by blank page, followed by
error report

Expected Results:  entire file printed

What does the stack dump look like?

Are sure you mean 'lpr -P:lp0' and not 'lpr -Plp0'?

Can you attach the file out produced by:

	zcat /etc/alchemist/namespace/printconf/local.adl > out

(Youll need to be root to run the above command.)

Since submitting the bug, I have done further research. The bug is not in 
LPRng, but in Kwrite, and has already been reported (several times) to KDEbugs. 
KDE bug numbers are 15982, 22899, 14304. I was also wrong about the syntax of 
the lpr command: after hastily submitting the bug report, I tried printing the 
buffer (in Kwrite) to a file instead of a printer. When I tried converting the 
file from Postscript to PDF using ps2pdf, I also got the same stack dump as 
reported in #15982 above.

I'll try to be more careful next time...

It's fixed in current release
