iprint client 5.99 where are passwords stored?

we have a serious problem since iprint client 5.99 update on some lab machines.

The question: where does iprint store this password information?

there are circumstances in which User A prints afterwards user B logs in and the user credentials from user A are still visible in iprint client prefernce
(LDAP_DN, LDAP, eDir, Permanent)

where does this come from? registry? ini?

The Setup is with Novell Client - seemless Login.

if user B trys to print the print is cancelled.

ippErrs.log shows:
Module: spoolsv.exe
Trace Info: registry.c, line 12299, thread 00000DB0
Routine: GetSessionLoginData - RegOpenKeyEx failed 2
Error: Das System kann die angegebene Datei nicht finden.

it seems it tries to look up password information in the rgeistry.

more details:

this lab PCs use a shared user. (one windows User and SID - but with Novell Login Client32 and iPrint credentials passthrough)

Scenario: UserA logs on and Prints successfully. UserA Logs Off Windows Session. UserB Logs on via Novell Client.
=> iPrint Settings shows UserA DN! - and - in some cases even prints with UserA Credentials!! In other Cases Print is canceled.

I cannot find any place for the credential information. Verfied with registry comparison and file changes view. User Profile is mandatory/empty.

Only possibility i can think of that iPrint credentials are in Memory (Spooler?) and survives Windows Session logoff/logon.

Machine restart clears credentials.

This behavior was introduced with iPrint Client 5.99

As a quick workaround i placed a logoff script at the Machines with iprntcmd.exe -c (clear all passwords). Not Ideal however.

We are having the exact same problem in our lab. There was a server update over the weekend and now we have been experiencing the same issue for the past two days. Our clients are running Windows 8.1, iPrint 5.99, Novel Client 2 SP3 for Win8. It seems to not affect every user and one of our staff members claims that a person's account info survived a reboot. So far it's been difficult to troubleshoot.

Our server team submitted a ticket with Novell, so hopefully there's a solution soon.
