    Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.6.0_18"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_18-b07)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 16.0-b13, mixed mode, sharing)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Printing from any Java application on a Lexmark E352dn PS3 with an image setting of "1200 IQ" produces empty pages. Printing with "600 dpi" or "1200 dpi" works fine, but the "Image Quality (IQ)" modes don't.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1. Install the Microsft certified printer driver Lexmark_ABK_2KXP03_x86_PS_sys_de.exe

      2. Run the HelloWorlPrinter example from the tutorial

      3. Compile and run the application. When printing select the "Lexmark E352dn PS3" printer. Redirect output to a file named "xxx.ps". Make sure to set the image quality to "1200 IQ".




      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Viewing this file with a psoscript viewer should display a page with the text "Hello world!"
      ACTUAL -
      The page is empty, no text is displayed.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
