I don't know about FC3 but under RedHat Enterprise Linux 3 we have similar 
problems. I don't know the solution.  However I do know that with our 
application if you hit it hard enough by opening and closing "choose printer" 
and "configure printer" screens and trying to print and standing on a chair 
and reciting poetry and ..... then suddenly it starts working and then 
continues working.
