OS X Odds & Ends: Brother HL-1240 driver; Possible kernel panic fix

Carl Houghton writes: "I thought I was the only one with the problem but I've seen other reports on the Web that confirm that the driver just sits there n the print manager after printing is initiated and hangs without printing anything. I have been able to reset the printer from the front panel to get it to print out a quarter of a page."
