[cups.general] WinXP Adobe driver bug

Ive discovered that the adobe postscript printer driver has a very annoying bug.

It out puts several "print" lines in the file. - this is one of them -
statusdict begin (%%[ ProductName: ) print product print ( ]%%)= flush end

it corrupts the printout produced by ghostscript.

by putting -sstdout=/dev/null in the gs command line inside the ppd file for the printer fixes the problem.

now I get a perfect printout each time.
