I'm not sure, but can you see if you get a "closestackrequest" message to
the current card? It's possible that Windows may just "request" Rev to

As far as "print from the Finder" is concerned, you can do this by
right-clicking a file in the desktop and choosing "Print" (at least under
Win2k and XP)...
