      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version " 1.7.0_21 "
      Java (TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_21-b12)
      Java HotSpot (TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      This problem affects only systems with more than one printer.

      On the test-system, there is three printers:

      CUPS_PDF (default printer)
      Samsung_CLP_610
      Zebra_TLP2844_2

      Regardless of which printer is selected, the print job is sent to the default printer. Debugging confirms that the correct printer is selected.
