System: FreeBSD 5.3-BETA3 FreeBSD 5.3-BETA3 #2: Wed Sep 8 13:37:55 IDT 2004 root at i386

	I have set test machine, under vmware, where I installed 5.3-beta3
	The printer is HP DeskJet 3650
	I use it under cups + hpijs-cups (not in ports)

	This bug also happens with 6-current.

	I have tried this under with:
		offical 5.3-beta3 kernel
		5.3-beta3 + ule  + usb_debug (at level 10)
		5.3-beta3 + 4bsd + usb_debug (at level 10)
	in all conditions I got the crash,
	where using the usb_debug I got it _right away_
	where as, in the offical I had to do multiply printing in cups.

	The problem is printing via cups, printing test page for example,
	causes the bug.

	if I turn DIAGNOSTIC on the bug does appear.

	I have kernel dump + kernel.debug for all kind of kernels (at request),
	here goes the dmesg and backtrace of 4bsd+usbdebug:

	Basicly the pipe queue is empty when reaching the code,
	and it expects to have something in queue.

	Boot kernel with USB_DEBUG, and set:
	and try to print to your usb printer.

	Maybe to add a check to see if queue is already empty ?
