Every 12th print job is paused on network printer

The reason why this question is not in the Printing section is that I have the WinNT solution, which does not work in Win2K.
And now to the problem:
Some time ago, my users were experiencing a problem, when every 12th print job sent to network printers would pause. The fix for our NT servers was to run regedit, then go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\LPDSVC\LPR and change the value from 0 to 1, which enabled local buffering for every printed document.
The print jobs are all being sent to the print server from an AS400.

We have now installed a Win2K server machine as a print server, and the problem has re-occured. Going into the registry, I couldn't find the same entries - different location maybe, which makes sense, but I also came up with nothing when searching for LPDSVC within the registry.

Any ideas anyone? Appreciate your help.
Please let me know if you need more info.

Thanks SystmProg, but both solutions refer to the NT fix, of which I'm aware, whereas my problem is with applying the same fix (or similar) to a Win2K server (all in the problem description...).

Well, I've had a look in the above reg key, but there's absolutely nothing under "lpr" - no printers IP addresses or anything else.
I can't recall ever having to create these entries manually. Aren't they supposed to be created by Windows every time you create a new LPR port?
