2.9 or 2.8.1 – Same problem

I noticed the same problem with an app of mine which worked perfectly on 
XP but when moved to Vista, printing just blew away Rev.  My printer is 
a Xerox Phasor 8400DN that I talk to over my network so our printer 
setups are different enough to (possibly) exclude driver issues although 
we could both just be "lucky." :-)

My problem is that it is not consistent.  Sometimes it DOES work.  Go 
figure...
