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...
