HP 4V Printer
HP 4V has been used for 11x17 copies since Gutsy without many issues.
Moving from Lucid to 12.04, the printer now spits out 4 essentially blank pages before printing a requested page.
There are 4 lines of "PJL SET ..." at the top of each blank page. After booting up you can generally get 1 or 2 pages to print correctly before the printer turns into a recyclable garbage generator.
Current driver version is HP LaserJet 4V Foomatic/ljet4 but vitually all have been tried including hplip 3.12.11 installed from shell.
Where is this bug coming from.
