running lpr w/local printer hangs machine

on an ultra (ultra1.test.redhat.com) running lpr w/the default printer
connected locally hangs the machine, requiring a reboot ... running lpr
with the printer configured for local access but not physically attached
does NOT hang the machine...
this was tested with
Since it hangs the machine it's probably a kernel issue...
And we don't have a sparc over at redhat.de, so I can't do anything to reproduce
this/trace it down.
It's a kernel bug, should be fixed in 2.2.15preX.
... which will be in the next Raw Hide release.
