I wrote last week describing a problem I was having with the apple
laserwriter connected to my SS2 workstation getting hung and requiring
a reboot of my system to clear.

The response was less than voluminous, but the quality was quite good.

Ivan Angus ( suggested I look into patch 100513,
which I did, and it seems to indeed alleviate the problem.

Thanks, Ivan.

Here is the README associated with that patch. I'm not sure why my queries
didn't pull it up previously.
