Old problem revival time...
Since dumps don't like being written out to a partition on a RAID1 set, this
is about the only kind of trace I could obtain:
For what it's worth, I moved the printer to another machine and removed the
USB-to-parallel adapter that was the catalyst of the problem. If anyone cares
to work on this problem I'll be more than happy to send the cable on a one-way
trip to any interested party in order to help get the problem resolved.
If anyone's interested in the cable for testing, etc. just let me know.

If your sysadmin's not being fascist, you're paying him too much.
