Oh, didn't I mention I tried that ?  the "default devmode" parameter doesn't

Since I did the question, I've made more tests; and now, the only printers
which drivers don't work are the "HP 1220C". The "HP 1120C" drivers suffer the
same error.
The Spooler/Explorer dies when trying to print. Anyway, now I can get the
properties of the printer and modify them.

The "HP Business InkJet 2230" drivers now work; I think that's for the patch
applied (parse_sec).

Thank you very much!
