Way back when I re-wrote the parallel port driver, I got lots of
beta-testers with different kinds of printers and made *sure* that
my code ran well with all of them before I submitted my changes to
Linus. Apparantly that mode of operation is considered passe these
days, even during code freezes. Blech.

I encountered the same problem with 1.3.98. Watching the busy light
on my printer, it stayed on steadily instead of blinking normally.
There's clearly been a screwup somewhere. I haven't tried .97 on
this machine; I used to run developmental kernels on a different
machine which I no longer have available, and it wasn't connected
to the printer.
