If I send many print jobs to a (not so) fast PostScript printer (serial OR
parallel interface, doesn't affect the result) lpd "forgets" some of them.
lpd is running w/ the -l option and logs that it received all jobs. After
that several jobs aren't being printed.
If I do a lpr -Ppost filename.ps 10 times, 2-6 jobs are being printed.
On the serial line the PostScript printer TI Ominlaser 2106 runs w/38400
baud (16550A), parallel port is a standard PC port.
If I configure the printer to be on a remote host (IBM AIX), the linux
lpr/lpd client sends all 10 jobs to the IBM, none is lost.
