I think you need to set longnumber in your lpd.conf (or on this particular
printer in the printcap file) - this will increase the 3 digit job number
to 6 digits in length. Your best bet may be to ask on the LPRng mailing
list if this doesn't work, as it is likely a problem in there. However,
this should do it. Good luck!
