Re: Printer Daemon (Update)

Here's the output:
~> ls -ld /var/run
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Nov 21 23:14 /var/run
~>  ls -ld /var
drwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  0 Aug 21 22:44 /var

I agree; this is really bizarre-o.

One other data point, fwiw:  This machine, I'm pretty sure, started out with a fresh install of DF 2.6, which was then upgraded via source to 2.8 and this is the first time I've used it to print.  If I can find a spare machine, I'll try a fresh install.  Would a vkernel make a good test?

What is the output from:   ls -ld /var/run
And maybe:                 ls -ld /var
although I'd be pretty surprised if /var was the problem.

Seems strange that several people are seeing this.  I can't
imagine what's going on, so all I can do is make some wild
guesses at it.
