Description glenn 1999-01-08 17:03:55 EST
This is a known problem with 2.0.7 glibc.  I've just spent
4 or 5 hours tracking it down, and I much would have rather
found out about it somewhere in the man pages, or
any other documenatation.

Please help to try to get this fixed.

It makes it more difficult to manage a print server.
