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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) suggested I look into patch 100513,
which I did, and it seems to indeed alleviate the problem.
Here is the README associated with that patch. I'm not sure why my queries
didn't pull it up previously.
