It seems I'm having lots of trouble with NetBSD 2.0beta.  The most recent
problem discovered is that I can no longer print to my HP LJ1200 laser via
USB.  Under 1.6, I used /dev/ulpn1.  Under 2.0beta, all data sent to that
device just disappeares - the printer doesn't even blink its led.  I also
tried /dev/ulpt1 which produces the same result with an added delay.

There are no messages in syslog, lpd log just says

Jun  1 17:56:45 pyy lpd[23368]: pyy requests printjob lp

and catting a file directly to /dev/ulp?1 does nothing.

My deskjet seems to print ascii text using /dev/ulpt0, so USB isn't all
