LPD Issue with Server 2008 64Bit R2

[Formate] As we have all known ever since Windows 2000 there has been a data truncation issue in Windows Server, with data coming via LPR/LPD being wrapped at column 80, regardless of paper setting within the printer. More information can be found in the MS KB article 150930.


It has been found that this problem persists in Windows Server 2008, and although the OS is not referenced directly in the knowledge base article it is still applicable [pca - with thanks to BG/AW]
