I solved the hardcopy problem by commenting out the `pdev` line in my
vimrc. Why Vim decided it was no longer correct is a mystery. It
hadn't changed for months. I can only surmise that a fractional change
in something somewhere caused this but I haven't been able to trace it.
Before, Vim wouldn't print without it, now it won't print with it.
But masters, remember that I am an ass.
Though it be not written down,
yet forget not that I am an ass.
