We are using Digital Unix 4.0D, and attempted to upgrade to 2.0.7 this
morning. Things apparently worked but we started getting reports of print
jobs dissappearing.  Up'ing the debug level we have noticed that in some
invocations of the 'lpr' command, the '%p' is being replaced by '_S'.  We
have had to back out again to 1.19

The cfg entries are
   print command = /usr/ucb/lpr -r -P%p %s
   printing = bsd
   printcap name = /etc/printcap

   browseable = no
   comment = Computing Services Printers
   create mode = 0700
   path = /usr/spool/samba
   printable = yes
   public = no

NB: No changes have been made to printcap or smb.cfg, we simply updated the

The bianries were straight out of the box, so to speak, we changed the
--prefix and compiled with ths std DEC C compiler.
