This one is surpassingly strange...

My application has been running for years (and years) without any problems such as this one. We recently made some changes in the network environment (Citrix, print server, etc.) We had lots of problems getting our printing sorted out, especially two .lbx formats, a hang tag and a receipt. By juggling drivers and printer settings we have mostly ironed these out, but now we are in a pattern where everything pretty much goes OK except that every day around 1:45 these two labels begin printing crazy. Typically the hangtag will begin to print as a tiny version of itself in the upper left corner of the page - or it will lose track of which printer tray it is supposed to be on, and the receipt font will become enormous and the receipt 4 feet long. This happens more or less simultaneously to multiple locations runnning the application via Citrix. Restarting the application once or twice usually puts things back right. Strangely, only these labels seem to suffer from this; reports (.frx) seem immune

These changes are spontaneous; both labels are inside inside the compiled exe and all locations are running the same executable. We have checked event logs on all the servers involved (Citrix, printserver, dataserver) but see nothing amiss.

I just wonder if anyone has experienced anything like this... ???
