iPrint unreliable on Terminal Server

Terminal Server users print to iPrint printers. Worked well with NDPS. After
rebuild the client to iPrint client and workstation installed printers the
printing started getting unstable. The TS starts building up local queues
after some days, and they have to be manuaally removed before printing can
be done again. The problem only appears on Terminal Server. iPrint on XP
works just fine.
iPrint client version 4.20
NW client 4.91 sp2
ZEN agent 6.5.1
TS on W2003 sp1
Workstation associated printers
All printer agents configured as Novell gateway and RAW (port 9100)

This may have something to do with the slow printing fix from Microsoft.
Not sure if they fixed this for the terminal server or not. Take a look
at KB893225 and see if they give any advice

Thanks. Could not find your KB, but there were a lot of hotfixes searching
for "slow printing".
Print problem in win 2003 Terminal Server looks quite common. I have dropped
iPrint on TS. Have had no problems so far, and the problem points towards
iPrint. If the problem reappear I´ll go for hotfixes. This problem have only
appeared IRL and cannot be provoked in our lab. I guess it needs some
combined printer error and printing actions to be confirmed.
