Server NW 6.5.4 OES, 15 NDPS Novell gateway printers, all IP, all static addresses. Desktop is XP SP2.

After submitting print job, application pauses 1-2 minutes while job spools. Occurs whether job is simple or complex, all printer models. Seems to have started about 6-8 months ago, possibly from XP patches (windows update). Print settings data format is RAW, have tried printing directly to printer as well as spooling, no difference.
