Good Morning,

I have been having a problem for awhile and I need some help with it. I
have a Samsung network printer SCX-4725FN. It is a postscript printer. 

I am running FreeBSD 8 stable.

FreeBSD asus64.shasta204.local 8.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 8.1-PRERELEASE
#34: Fri Jun 25 21:17:41 PDT 2010
root at asus64.shasta204.local:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

I have a simple printcap file:

lp|samsung|Samsung SCX-4725N:\

The printer works fine with most all of the programs I use with the
exception of Gnumeric. If I try to print a spreadsheet, I get dozens of
pages with between one and four lines of garbled information. 

On my wifes computer running the XP version of the Redmond OS, Gnumeric
will print the same spreadsheet with out any problems.

Is there a problem with my printcap file or is this a bug. I can supply
any other information needed.
