I first observed this with v1.2.4 on RHEL5/CentOS5 and verified it also occurs with v1.3.7(OpenSuSE 11.0, Fedora 9) and, based on previous postings to this forum, downloaded the latest v1.4 development version, compiled it on RHEL5.1, and verified that the problem persists.

What is the device URI for the printer you are using?
