I doubt Scott's results are the result of a fix in Gutsy.  David Trask also reported he
can print my test documents without a hitch other than mouse movements getting a little
choppy and the client running somewhat sluggish until the job is dispatched to the
printer (5-10 seconds worse case?).  I can also reproduce Scott and David's success with
higher memory printers (HP4550N and a Ricoh CL2000, I think both are 4MB-8MB as compared
to a HP4000N's 2MB).  At this point I am leaning towards low memory networked printers
being the problem and the freeze resulting when printer memory is exceeded.  I will also
try attaching a HP4000 directly to a machine and sharing it, then printing from a
client.  My guess is that the machine acting as a print server will be able to cache the
print job for the printer and the client will be able to go on its merry way.....we'll
see :-)

I have an issue with jumbled graphics when printing images on the 6020p, but I think
that is related to a separate issue affecting just the 6020p.
