That does help[. I didn't have this problem with an ESS and i suspected it was only a parallel port issue. looks like i am correct. There really isn't anything else on these computers.

I believe the problem lies with the parallel port driver that was changed in version 3.043.053. I rolled two machines back to 3.043.052 and this problem seems to have gone away. I hope this helps others with the same problem.
