From Bugzilla Helper:

Description of problem:
I run printool (or printconf-gui) When I am creating a new printer or
editing an existing one, I cannot get the "send EOT"  flag to stay checked.

I check the box and then hit the "OK" button.  But when I go back to edit
the printer the flag is still unchecked.

When I looked in the /etc/alchemist/namespace/printconf/local.adl file, the
flags section is empty.  My local.adl file looks like this...  (gunzipped)

---------------- local.adl file ---------------------------

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open printtool (or printconf-gui)
2.create a new printer
3.name: lp0
4.queue type: local printer
5.printer device: /dev/lp0
6. Printer driver: HP - color laser jet 4500 (I have the same results if I
choose a plain vanilla Postscript printer)
7. Driver options: check the send EOT box
8. Hit the "OK" button
9. Select the printer for edit
10. On the Driver options page, the send EOT box should still be checked

Actual Results:  the "send EOT" box was unchecked

Expected Results:  the "send EOT" box should be checked

Additional info:

I have an HP color laser jet 4500 with duplex printing.
Single page jobs that I queue up take ~7 minutes to print - I believe it is
because the printer is waiting for the EOT, and when it doesn't recieve it,
it times out and prints the page.  But 2 page jobs will print immediately.

I am using the following rpms.

A workaround would be helpful (ie. what is the line that I could put in my
local.adl to make it send the EOT - if there is one.)

This is fixed in the current version (in rawhide), and very possibly in
7.2+updates as well.
