>> oMethod = oClass.getMethod("getPrinterNames")
>> aNames = oMethod.invoke(oServer, Array())

So this means the problem with this absolutely unusable (despite the
CoreReflection hoops) service is known for more than 2.5 years already,
and nobody of us developers ever cared? Shame on us!

Known as http://openoffice.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=117765 now,
fixed in CWS fs35a.
