    The software initialise the ECR (ECP extended control register) correctly.
    In other case the software could not work under Win ME.
    The ECP Hardware is correctly used from software. This is true because:
    under Win ME it's
    run correctly and because a symple instruction "if (0) printf ("22");"
    increse the problem under
    linux (under win ME continue to work fine).
    Other idea?

    But your program needs to initialise the ECR to the value that it
    needs. Is it doing that? If not, it should; that sounds like the
    problem, to me.
