SubjectRe: 1.3.98 and printer

I get a somewhat different set of symptoms. I have an Epson Color
Stylus printer (the original, about 1 year old) hooked to my home
machine through the parallel port. I brought up 1.3.98, and now see
that /var/log/messages, has lots of printer off-line messages, as I
print netscape pages (via ghostscript lpr filter). I suspect the
printer is using the off-line bit to flow control the host. Maybe,
the kernel should only report the error if there has been no response,
in say 5 minutes.
