Description mcintosh 1999-06-02 19:28:20 UTC
Attempts to print to printers with the "rs" capability
turned on result in a cryptic error message that the job
could not be printed, with no explanation as to why.

The cause is a bug in printit() in lpd/printjob.c.  If the
"rs" capability is turned on, the code exits case 'P' in
pass 1 without ever setting euser[] to something reasonable.
This confuses later code that thinks it has been set.

I will post a fix once a bug number has been assigned.
