[STR New]

actually this applies to version 6 of the drivers.

The print-files that windows delivers to CUPS have a training ^M. These
files will not be printed by my printer, I only get error message printed
After using an additional filter which calls "dos2unix", the ^M's vanish
and the file will be printed.

An example output is attached and also the .ppd-file
