This was a bug introduced in 3.0.6 and fixed in 3.0.8 (at
least on Intel).  Yours is the second report I have on a
big endian box so we still have a byte ordering problem here

No.  It's a different issue.  The 'spooling job' bug was fixed
in 3.0.7 I think.  Can't remember exactly.

I'll look at this today and the slow printing bug people
have reported as well.

cheers, jerry
