Description Brock Organ 2000-01-10 13:09:16 EST

with the printer configured for local access but not physically attached
does NOT hang the machine...

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.
