Oops ! Many errors in my previous mail ! Shame on me !

excepted that j_strcat returns a pointer to the *end*
of the dest string, allowing concatenation with successive
j_strcat() calls.

j_strcat is neither strcpy nor strcat !
While strcat expect the dest pointer to be the start of
the dest string, j_strcat expect dest to point on the
trailing nul.

Wooops ! in spool_print() !

Sorry for my previous post :)
