I have been a proponent of screwdrivers for awhile now on the list. Well
this week, I finally ran into some problems with it.  I did a 1.6 to FXP
upgrade and ran into serious problems.  I was wondering if other
screwdriver's users had any advice.  

We print seriously complex documents for a mortgage application.  The
documents are multi-page and just about every combination of Letter,
Legal, Landscape, and Portrait you can think of.  SD 1.6 has worked well
from an admin perspective (very stable), but the users hated specifying
print orientation in the client.

Documents are primarly printed from a MS Access XP application.

The FXP upgrade caused serious flaky issues with the ICA client.  Server
side things were fine, but the ICA client was dropping out on client
workstations because of ICA Virtual channel issues.

Server side everything chugged along, but the documents never printed
after killing the ICA client.

Tricerat has reccomened upgrading printer drivers across the board
(essentially, verifying the driver on every workstation), which is what
we purchased SD to get away from originally.

Has anyone else had these issues?  Where driver updates the only way to
solve the problem?
