Description

s-c-p throws this up when what it means is "Waaah, I haven't heard from the printer in the past 5 seconds, and I've never heard of network print servers before, so clearly something catastrophic happened". There has to be a way to say "This is a network printer, it's not going to give you toner status, and if the backend you just exec'd is still running, then maybe you should say 'Processing job' instead, you moron"
