We run Molscript 1.4 on a DEC 1152 printer and encounter problems
to print once a single plot has completed - the postscript
output will block the printer for further requests.
Hardware configuration - UNIX:
'lp' on a SGI printing directly via serial connection.
'lpr' on a HP5 Laserjet attached to a Lantronix printserver via network.
The problem does *not* occur after copying the output to a VAX and running
it from VMS through Digital's print queueing system on a Turbo LPS20.
Again, the postscript file is *fine*, the output is *fine*, but
afterwards the printer is blocked.
Suggestions, specifically, solutions, are most appreciated.
