Description of problem:
When printing from applications on Windows 98 platforms the print job goes
to the printer (Ricoh Aficio 220 Ver. 1.4.4) quickly. The windows client
then hangs for 20 to 30 seconds.
Suspect the job completion details are not being returned to the client

Printing from the linux box to the printer is not affected.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Print from Windows client via linux print server to printer.
Actual Results: Print job prints, 20 to 30 secondwait for print job to
complete on client.
Expected Results: Print job completing on client quickly (1-4 seconds)
for small 1-2 page jobs.

Not proved to be a RedHat problem... not being worked. So delete from list....
