I know a few other people have reported high cpu usage with print servers
on solaris systems. One thing that I have noticed is that we are primarily
having the problem with new HP 4200 and 4300 printers. I know Jeremy had
said that the looping was due to spoolss support being disabled. Well I
have re-enabled that functionality on a test basis, and I still get high
CPU usage with the 4200 and 4300 printer drivers. I have level 10 logs
from 2.2.8a on the effected process. I have even upgraded to a CVS version
of 3.0 from yesterday and the same problem is happening with it. Thus far
it is localized to those models only.
