The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.
- There is a (small) memory leak in lpd which lets its
memory usage grow a bit for each print job until the
print system becomes unusable.
- Using lprng with a printcap provided via NIS/YP produced
following error: 'Init_tempfile: bad tempdir
'/var/spool/lpd/%P''. This was caused by the function
'Init_tempfile()', which tried to create tmpfiles in the
spool directory, which was not expanded at this time.
Patched version creates tmpfiles in tmpdir, when
spooldir is not yet expanded.
Apply YOU patch number 11603.
