Description Geoff Reedy 1999-09-07 18:13:27 UTC
I tried this before, but it seems to have gotten lost...

lpd attempts to create a null file, because a mktemp(3) call

mktemp(3) returns a NULL string.  I have a patch, but
bugzilla says I should refer a bug number.

NULL, and then an attempt to create a file with this name.
This, of course, fails and the print job is not spooled
correctly, causing it not to print.  I have a patch, but
bugzilla wants there to be a bug report before submiting a
