Description of problem:
i have a problem with lpr -b 
i do font uploads using the -b option. on redhat 6.2 lpr the -b options 
works the files are not scanned and put to the printer. i recently upgrade 
to redhat 7.1. the lpr -b option scans all the files. this cause the lpd 
to go crazy. it takes 30 mins to upload the fonts. on 6.2 about 45 seconds.

am i do something wrong with this new lpd.  and option maybe. tried -b -l -
h  still nothing.
the only way i can get it to work is if i use  lpr -Y  @192.168.0.x.. but 
whats the -b -l options for.

very confused on this option. i am not sure if it a bug.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
fonts upload  mac's and binary files
1.lpr -b -h -P laser /etc/******

Actual Results:  the lpd is scanning the files

Expected Results:  send the job to the printer without scanning

What do you mean by 'scanned'?  Could it be that it's copying the files to the 
spool area?  How big are these fonts files?
