                DEFECT#:     74083
                DESCRIPTION: Printing to an IBM 4039 in Duplex causes
                             "Stackundeflow"
                RESOLUTION:  The buffer to handle duplex was increased.

                             to driver upper limit.
                RESOLUTION:  If strokepath fails the driver will attempt

                             already exists.
                RESOLUTION:  Driver tries to display error message but
                             application does not have a message queue
                             so driver will create one for it.

                DESCRIPTION: "Forms Mismatch" displayed by spooler
                             when printing.
                RESOLUTION:  If the form in 'Printer Properties' and
                             'Job Properties' do not match, "Forms
                             Mismatch" is displayed. The driver now
                             provides better form checking.
