Description Makia Minich 2001-11-16 19:42:46 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux
2.4.3-SGI_XFS_1.0.1-LLNL-smp-win4lin i686)

Description of problem:
When issuing the command:
   lpr -P<printer> file1 file2

I will get two copies of each (instead of the desired single copy).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo "file 1" > a
2. echo "file 2" > b
3. lpr -P<remote printer> file1 file2
4. Run to printer and see what comes out.	

Actual Results:  After the above, I wound up with 2 copies of each file. 
This does not happen with the lpr-0.50-7.6.x package.

Expected Results:  I should only receive one copy of each file.

It doesn't happen when printing to the local printer, at least.

Can't reproduce with 3.8.7 (in rawhide).
