XenApp 5 on server 2008 x64 garbled printing

Hello

We have a XenApp 5 FP3 single server farm on a Windows Server 2008 x64.

Printers are all installed locally on the clients. These are mostly network printers.

All printers are auto-created dynamic session printers. Only citrix UPD allowed and no auto installed print drivers. Indirectly routed. This is setup with policies.

Whenever they print large documents, more than 3 pages, the first 3 pages will come out correctly but from then all is garbled. They have this problem to all the printers with all applications. Brother, HP and Sharp.

I have just found a solution by adjusting the printer properties on the client. Under the advanced tab I have checked 'Start printing after last page is spooled' and unchecked 'enable advanced printing features'.
I have only tested this with a Brother printers which is installed with the Brother Generic driver found here: http://solutions.brother.com/metaframe/en_us/index.html 

I'm wondering what could cause this behavior and if there isn't a better solution. Because this is happening to all the printers for all the users, I'm guessing there is a problem with the citrix UPD.

Any suggestions.

It's down to the job language. The advanced printing features does add extra functionality in a very small number of drivers, largey unknown options (i.e. N-Up pages). It in effect forces "standard" PCL language as such so that EMF is not used which can be misread.

It's fine to have set....
