i can't imagine printing being any faster by accessing the raw device;
you've bypassed the spooler.  something wierd is happening.

does messages say anything wierd about parport driver?

ok, this is what i thought it would do.

grasping at straws...

maybe you can rig up an input filter to make a copy of the job once it's
spooled.  queue the job with lpr and compare the post spooled version
with the original job.  prolly a fruitless endeavour, but all i can come
up with.

are you using cups or lprng?  i've never used either one.  maybe they do
some filtering not explicitly mentioned in printcap?
