I think I have the symptom of the problem.
Let me explain:

1. My file which I want to print is 17667619 bytes (name file.esc.pcl6)
2. I have defined another file as my printer (because I ran out of
paper... :-) ):
	touch /tmp/file.prn
	chmod a+rw /tmp/file.prn
	chown lp.lp /tmp/file.prn
	lpadmin -p printer1 -E -v parallel:/tmp/file.prn 
	service cups restart
3. lpr -Pprinter1 file.esc.pcl6
4. After step 3, file size of /tmp/file.prn keeps increasing until the
size of 9646058 bytes, and then just stops.
