Collision is what happens I'm afraid -- you lose one of the jobs AFAIK
(Your Linux distro may have fixed it in a patch though).
Even if they have fixed it, if the print jobs are sent remotely using
rm/rp then you still have a collision problem.
I'd suggest checking one of the other printing systems like LPRng, as the
BSD one is pretty brittle all-round and I'm surprised you haven't run into
any other problems yet! ;)
