After six months of perfect functioning, after emerging a week ago,
I can no longer print to a networked Laserjet 2300.

When I print a simple text file, I get *no errors* in cups (debug2 mode),
but get the following stuck process:

8003 ? S 0:00 socket://192.168.1.200:9100 5 larry ideas.txt 1

Somewhere between half an inch, and a full inch of text does print to
my printer. The rest of the page is blank. The socket process stays
stuck open and the printer dumps either a blank page or a page of
random gobbledigook ever couple of minutes or so.

Very weird. Trying to step back to earlier versions of cups, foomatic,
ghostscript et al, and earlier kernels, does not help.

Any ideas? HELP!

If you feel that a thread is in the wrong forums, ask a moderator (via pm) to move it :D
