The following messages appear during print operation:

shell-init: could not get current
directory:job-working-directory: could
not get current directory:
job-working-directory: could not get current directory:

print operation does succeed. what do the messages mean
and how they be prevented?

It means that the shell can't read the directory it's currently
running out of.

What are the permissions on /var/spool/lpd/<whatever your printer name

Closing this for now - if you're still having the problem, feel free to re-open
it with more information.
