I've got a Freebsd6 print server that has two printers attached to it, both hp models one a deskjet the other a laserjet. Both are exhibiting the same behavior, whenever i print something from a windows box, xp in this case, the windows boxes use windows printer drivers and samba3 for this, the document i want is printed and removed from the unix print queue no problem. The issue, minor though annoying, is at the end of every document the printer ejects the last page as it should, but then i get one blank page spat out of the printers. I am unsure how to debug this, if it's samba, or freebsd or the unix script i am using for unix to talk to the printer. Any help appreciated. My config is below.

/etc/printcap(only one printer displayed for brevity)
deskjet|lp|hp|Hulett Packard Deskjet 5550 printer:\

deskjet-r|lp1|hp-raw|Hulett Packard Deskjet 5550 printer-raw:\

   echo $first_line && cat && printf "\033&l0H\033E" && exit 0

exit 2
