WINEPS insists on using LPT1:

The following lines were already present in that module:

    physDev->job.output = output ?
      HEAP_strdupA( PSDRV_Heap, 0, output ) :
      HEAP_strdupA( PSDRV_Heap, 0, "LPT1:" );  /* HACK */

There is a TRACE earlier in that function:
	TRACE("(%s %s %s %p)\n", driver, device, output, initData);
Which produces:
	trace:psdrv:PSDRV_CreateDC (WINEPS Wine PostScript Driver
(null) 0x4038fc7c)

So 'output' is null, so "LPT1:" is used, I guess.

Where do we go from here?
