error every two pages [Ubuntu 10.04; solved - Windows does it too]

Hello,
First of all, thanks for the good job, my printer works and that's cool ;) (didn't happened very well with the previous one)
Anyway, I encounter a small annoyance, when I print multiple pages or multiple copies, the "ready" and "error" lights start blinking alternatively every two pages and the printing stops. I have to push the "clear" button, and then the printing continues normally (no missing pages or whatever). So it's not fatal, just a little annoying to have to stay near the printer to press clear every two pages.

Any idea what could be the problem ?

PS: I was printing with evince, gimp, inkscape... using ubuntu 10.04 but with your sources, on a x64 machine

Works fine on Fedora 13 with letter and A4 sizes, printing to physical page size letter and A4.

$ lpr -P mc1600W 4pages.ps
{printed fine}

What is paper size on your printer????

Give me a sample IN POSTSCRIPT!!!

Hi, and happy new year
Sorry for the late reply, I used 'Follow topic' but didn't receive any mail, then I forgot...
In fact it seems the bug only appears with custom paper size, I'll try to print with lpr using custom paper size and give you a sample file if I still encounter the problem.

EDIT: it appends also with lp
lp -n 3 -o media=Custom.82x128mm  -o ColorMode=PhotoOnly -d mc1600W file.ps
With every file of the specified size

EDIT 2: maybe it also comes from the paper which is a thin cardboard, I will try to make some more tests

Custom size is limited to 92x184mm or greater. Checked it on Windows.

Oh ? ok, printed fine however ;)
But I had the same problem with paper size greater than A4 (for ex.: 21x32cm) (maybe 32cm is the beyond max limit ???)
