Better late than never...
Its been about a month since I asked...
Are there any work arounds/patches for the following problem
besides power cycling the system.
A Sparc 2 w/ 4.1.2 with a printer using xon/xoff on ttyb gets
into a state where lpc says it ready and printing but a visual
check says no way.
All possibilities of aborting, cleaning, resetting the queue in
conjunction with power cycling the printer appear to have been
exhausted with no effect.
Killing and restarting lpd has no effect either.

1) Don't do xon/xoff with HP products if you have a choice. - Greg Earle
2) i have some printers that are connected to a Sun through a
wiring closet (same as our UTP connections), and when these
printers hang up, i have to: "lpc stop", "lpc abort", dis-
connect the cabling _at_the_computer_end_, & "lpc start".
i haven't had a chance to figure out why this is necessary,
but it might help... - paul henninger
3) Patch 100225 was suggested but it was also described as not working
in 2 situations.
4) I chose patch 100397 which was said to be obsoleted by 4.1.2 but appears
to have worked for us. Recommended by Ivan Dean
Thanks to all.
