Robert, could you please give more details how i can reproduce it?
which software should i install? Thanks

Ngo, it's the Pentaprise Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP2) system. But you 
really don't want to try to reproduce that. The installation is only in German,
you've to be knowledged with that ERP system as well and the problem appears
there when trying to print something. The support from Pentaprise pointed us to
this cause when debugging it.

I'm very sorry, that I can't provide you more information. If you really need
to reproduce this problem, I could try to setup a demo system within a virtual 
machine this evening maybe.
