Description Geoff Reedy 1999-09-07 14:13:27 EDT
I tried this before, but it seems to have gotten lost...

lpd attempts to create a null file, because a mktemp(3) call
fails since a memcpy apparently leaves the string without
six X charaters at the end of the string.  In this situation
mktemp(3) returns a NULL string.  I have a patch, but
bugzilla says I should refer a bug number.

correctly, causing it not to print.  I have a patch, but
bugzilla wants there to be a bug report before submiting a
