Printing again

Can you believe it?

Problem was triggered by a pdf generated from TurboTax online version.
Magicolor 1650EN choked on the pdf, or should I say the PS generated
from the pdf by foomatic.  After using pdf2ps -> ps2pdf (a trick that
sometimes works with bad pdfs, i.e. those made by openoffice) I could
print 1 or 2 pages at a time, but more seems to take a lot of time.
I'm loosing patience after 1.5 hours for 9 pages.

pdf2djvu also complains about it, but I thought to try to first
convert it to raster and then print it again.  That also gave trouble.

Things went a lot better after installing the proper PPD file from [1].

Tss... if that was it then I really deserved loosing a couple of hours.
