Description Tim Waugh 2007-03-26 16:42:42 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #163960 +++

After configuring two printer as a class, schedule 10 printjobs one page each.

1-2 minutes before printing pull the plug on say printer 2.

Start printing 1st job get sent to printer 1 and print second job gets sent to
printer 2 which is not there

It doesn't print as printer 2 isn't plugged in and sits there waiting. All the
remaining jobs getting sent to printer 1.

The problem is acknowledged upstream:

Judging from the upstream reaction, I guess Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 is
affected too.
