Description of problem:
duplex printing fails on ps files, but works on ASCII files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. I have set up my printer as samba printer, using driver available in
printtool. I seleceted HP LaserJet 5M, and accept all default values,
except I change the default papersize and set the default to duplex mode.
All test pages can be printed
2. Text files can be printed in duplex, simply "lpr any-text-file" prints
the text file in duplex.
3. Printing ps files always printed in simplex.
Actual Results: 1. "lpr -Z Duplex" will always print simplex.
2. I tried "a2ps -s2" but the result is not duplex, but two pages printed
in the same side.
Expected Results: ps files should be printed in duplex.
I will attached the output of

A fix for -Z option handling is in rawhide, and that may very well fix this
problem. Please re-open if this isn't fixed in the next release (or beta).
