This OS the printing bug that was revealed a long time ago, but it is refusing to be killed off despite repeated attempts by Microsoft. In fact, far from getting killed, every new fix issued by Microsoft has been bypassed by the bug and in fact, it seems to have grown bigger in terms of the problems it poses.
