I disconnected that pins, it didn't help.

So, after Linux starts D7 is HIGH, D0 is LOW (I didn't check
others pins), when I write 0x00 to port (using program I posted before),
D7 changes to LOW for few ms (I can't measure exactly) and then
returns to HIGH, D0 stay LOW.
When I write 0xff D7 stay HIGH, D0 changes to HIGH for few ms,
and then returns to LOW.
If I write 0x00 then 0xff and repeat it with no delay pins are generating

I'm sure, I don't have a printer and I didn't install any printing software.
I tried to use "short" - example driver form "Linux Device Drivers, 2nd Edition"
By Alessandro Rubini & Jonathan Corbet. It initializes with no problems
(first I removed ppdev and parport modules), and when I write to it (/dev/short0)
the problem is the same.
