I've been searching about a solution reguarding the slow connection to the
printer: applications take ages to connect to user's printer, application
status was: opening (printer status stayed in opening for 10 seconds ...)
I've seen some post about that but without any real solution, well, the
proposed one didn't do anything for our system.

We're using Citrix Metaframe 1.8 in windows 2000 server SP4 with many
hotfixes ...

The problems was this hotfixe: KB324446
After removing it the problem went away. BTW, removing this hotfix solve
many slowness of the applications ...

I've seen that we're not the only one that have this problem so i wanted
to share our solution.

Good luck.
