The Product attributes inserted into the compiled PPD file cause the PPD file to not work on Mac OS 10.2. 10.2 requires that the Product string match the printer's USB descriptor string (e.g. Acme Foomatic 2000).

Re-declaring the Product attribute in the .drv file fixes the problem, but causes the resulting PPD file to have double the normal number of Product attributes. For example, putting this in the .drv file:

Attribute Product   ""  "Acme Foomatic 2000"
Attribute Product   ""  "(Acme Foomatic 2000)"

... causes the PPD file to have four Product lines (two of each).

It would be nice if ppdc would just replace the exissting Product attributes instead of adding extra lines.
