LPD Printing in RH 7.3

I have setup a printer (HP 2200 with a JetDirect print server) and it's
printing fine.

However, I have noticed that print jobs aren't being delete from my spool
directory once they are printed.

If I do a lpq -P<printer name> I see print jobs that have already printed.
There status is now done instead of active.

My printer's entry in /etc/printcap;


This never happened in previous RH release. Is this behaviour normal for
this release?
