> When I run XeTeX (actually XeLaTeX) on a document I get some strange
> network usage happening. I'm at home on a PowerBook G4 connected over
> wireless to my home network. There is a G5 which has a USB printer
> attached to it and which is served by the G5 to the network. On my
> laptop I check the access_log for cups at /var/log/cups/access_log and
> see this:

> Any idea why XeTeX would be causing this behavior?
