 Regarding fix to .seq file permission:
 
 http://ftp.utcluj.ro/pub/docs/ldp/bible-src/howtos/printing.html
 ...
 The Important Files
 Apart from the programs discussed above, each spool directory should
 contain four files - .seq, errs. lock and status. These files should
 have the permissions "-rw-rw-r--". The .seq file contains the job
 number counter for lpr to assign ...
 
 So, we can relax the permission to 0664.
