And also, lpd seems to be doing funny things at startup and shutdown.
The boot.log shows this info for my lpd
Aug 11 21:21:35 D-128-95-26-112 lpd: 2002-08-11-21:21:35.888
Get_local_host: hostname 'D-128-95-26-112' bad
Aug 11 21:21:35 D-128-95-26-112 lpd: lpd startup succeeded
The previous shutdown,
Aug 11 21:10:28 D-128-95-26-112 lpd: lpd shutdown failed
