Heads up....

I found a bug in the HEAD branch printing code.  When 
a remote printer in /etc/printcap is unavailable, trying 
to browse the Printers folder on the Samba server.

The spoolss_notify_cjobs() (called as a result of
api_spoolss_rfnpcnex()) forks and waits for the child
to exit.  However, when the printer is unable (remote one 
of course) the child hangs until it times out.

I'm working on the code, but if someone has a 
quick fix....let me know.

Cheers, jerry
