'WARE YOUR LJ CONFIGURATION
We had a load of problems when we first got LJ4s. I'm not sure how it
would work on your setup, but if the LJ can detect an "end-of-job", such
as if it is connected on a network, and the job is received via a
JetDirect card, the "end-of-job" triggers a hard reset. Any setup
commands you send in one job will not have any effect on the following
job unless they hard-change the printer defaults.
