#1560 PrintJobID generation faulty in jobs list


We have here kind of uncommon login names. They are all of
this scheme:
DDLLLDDD with D for Digit and L for letter.

When I let webmin list the print jobs, the Job ID is a combination
of the last three digits and the real job ID. With "normal"
login-names this doesnt happen.
At the same time the job-owner is only represented as DDLLL,
the last three digits are missing.

I already tried to figure out, why the generation of the ID, Name
and so on fails, but I didn't succeed yet.

    I would be interested in seeing the output from the command
    lpq -Pprintername
    on your system. I suspect that the job ID and username
    columns are
    being combined, making it hard for Webmin to parse the job list.

    Sorry for the long waiting time.

    You are right, the lpq command mixes username and jobid to a singe

    Looks like that:
    pcr2tinte is not ready
    Rank Owner Job File(s) Total Size
    1st 01htt0019208 smbprn.009326.hyDl0Z 2048 bytes

    For a better input, woulnd it be better to use lpstat -u, as lpq limits the
    username to 8 characters? Or does this make trouble on other OSses
    or with other printing systems than cups?

    I will update Webmin in future to handle this format, which
    will solve the problem .. Thanks for the lpq output example!
