    Yes, we know about that. The port capability probe is being a bit
    cavalier about what it feels entitled to do to the port - it's toggling
    STROBE a couple of times, which means that whatever garbage is in the data
    latch at the time goes to the printer.

    Hopefully we'll have a fix soon. Sorry about that.
