I had a problem at one client running 3.1 where a certain print job would never print to a TCP/IP printer. It would sit there all day trying. It turned out that the timeout was too low and when I upped it, the problem was solved. This only occurred at above 450 pages on a printout. I didn't get any "parameter 9" error like yours, but I wonder if it might be a similar problem being dealt with to differently by the newer OS. Too bad they aren't leaving any of the bread crumbs for you...
