Subject: BS 4.1.2 Printing Error

During CA certification, I upgraded Deborah's unit to 4.1.2 at the
beginning of demo.  During demonstration we set unit to Election
mode.  Then went to print a zero report.  Got a "Failed to write to
Printer" message.  (Same as Don/Jeff reported the other day).
I didn't take notes, but I believe that was the
message.  This is the same message I got and reported last night on my
unit, when running 4.1.2.

I immediately reloaded, set for election and printed report.  We
then brought unit back to Deborah's house after the demo.  I reloaded
4.1.2, set it for election and printed Zero report OK.  Then went to print
totals report and got same "failed" message.  It is inconsistent (at least
to me so far), but frequent and replicable on both our units at various times.  The only
thing that seems consistent is the "first time" use of the printer in each
of these functions.  This seems to render this version unusable to some
degree in production.
