Problem description

Karol Lewandowski discovered a problem with psbanner, a printer filter that creates a PostScript format banner. psbanner creates a temporary file for debugging purposes when it is configured as a filter, and does not check whether or not this file already exists or is a symlink. The filter will overwrite this file, or the file it is pointing to (if it is a symlink) with its current environment and called arguments with the user id that LPRng is running as.
