hello managers,

thanks for all replies to my problem.
finally i can say there is still no solution for the spool directory
filling with garbage.
according to Andreas.Stoll@Germany.Sun.COM it is a bug in 2.3 which
cannot be fixed with existing patches. solaris 2.4 will solve the problem.
in the meantime i run a cronjob, which cleans up /var/spool/lp/tmp in
the night.

many thanks for helping go to: (Ronald W. Henderson) (Hermida) (dave)
