Description of problem:
Last night, I printed 13 ps files (one page each) with the -K10 option on
each one. 5 were printed over the network, 8 locally (in that order).
Except the first one (which was finished before the rest were queued) all
the network print jobs were missing anywhere from 2 to 10 copies. All local
print jobs printed correctly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Queue multiple copies (-Kn) of large ps files that take a while to print.
2. Count how many copies come out.
3. It might not hurt to try mixing local copies.

Actual Results:  Jobs:
#1 (net, printed alone): all 10 copies printed
#2 (net): 2 copies printed
#3 (net): 0 copies printed
#4 (net): 7 copies printed
#5 (net): 5 copies printed
#6-#13 (local): 10 copies printed

Expected Results:  Everything should have printed, whether spooled locally
or via network.

Additional info:

The ps files were so big that lpq showed the active print job as stalled
after a certain point, although the print job was printing. There were
large delays between each copy--this is probably a separate bug.

In total, it took 8 hours to print all the jobs.

I was printing from a 7.2 box when over the network.

The 13 ps files are available on request: du -am shows:
9       page01.ps
30      page02.ps
18      page03.ps
19      page04.ps
24      page05.ps
19      page06.ps
17      page07.ps
19      page08.ps
19      page09.ps
21      page10.ps
19      page11.ps
18      page12.ps
17      page13.ps
(these were ps files generated by the gimp from png files)

I haven't been able to reproduce this problem.

Closing (we use CUPS now, not LPRng).
