Thats consistent with what I saw back in May. If you had "/usr/pkg/bin/lpr"
in acroread's dialog box it would try to to cd to "/usr/pkg/bin" which on
your problem machine would take it to "/emul/linux/usr/pkg/bin" and on the
other machine to "/usr/pkg/bin", do a getcwd() and append lpr to the result
to get the path it actually tries to use. Why it bothers I don't know.
