Testing this shows me that print buffer does work in this
configuration, provided of course that `lp' can print to its default
printer.  Our problem report was incorrect; printing actually works
but the output is formatted incorrectly.  The behavior is the same as
if `pr -er | lp' was used; the letter `r' is taken as a tab character
and expanded into spaces.  I'll file a bug report.
