Reminder: Printing Multiple Copies
The problem with multiple copies - request n copies, get n^2 - announced in November no longer affects OS X systems using the new SMB print queues. The problem still exists on the linux workstations and servers.
For now, I've capped the print queues at four copies. Unfortunately, the jobs are not simply rejected, but cause the queue to stop; removing the job won't restart the queue. If this happens, email email@example.com; you ssh to another system and print until the queue on your own workstation is cleared.
We are working on a less disruptive workaround in place very soon and hope to have a full solution before long.
