The default printer for the user is defined a 4214 *RMT. It is actually a
Lexmark 2491 attached to a I/O Sys Model 5450. It is configured as an
*ANYNET printer, so it may do non-standard print sizes. TN5250E print cannot
'do' non-standard print sizes. It is possible the *RMT device is doing some
strange stuff, but the output is actually going to an OUTQUEUE that is not
attached to a printer. What is odd is the print file and program for both
examples are the *SAME.
