Hallelujah!

There's a PTF that fixed my problem!  Seems there have been a number of
problems fixed by PTF SF58784 (for v4r2).

This includes assorted problems with the PJL drivers and LAN *IP printers.

Since we applied the PTF (which may be installed immediately (as long as
you end subsystem QSPL)), our problems (with AFP, at least) have gone away.


Note:  the PTF has prerequisites that require either an IPL or restricted
state to apply.

Our 8 Meg of memory in the printer seems to be adequate at the moment.  Of
course, more is better.  We are using device support.
