    This is an old bug in FH. I've seen it in FH9 and I think it is still
    around.
    After printing more than 1 copy of a file (i.e. 5) you must reset the
    printer driver by sending 0 copies to print ( 0 x 5 = 0). After that you
    will be able to print normally again...until you again send more than 1
    copy. Someone on another list clued me in to this bizzare FH bug that drove
    me insane. The worse thing was that it would grow and grow until you crash
    your printer driver .

    I usually print just one copy at at time so it doesnt rear its ugly head too
    often. I am also not sure if this behaviour is consistent with all printerts
    but...
