Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050405 Firefox/1.0 (Ubuntu package 1.0.2)
Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird version 1.0.2 (20050404)

When printing multiple messages in Thunderbird, the printing to a printer works
fine. When printing into a file however, the resulting ps file only contains the
last of all the messages even though dialog boxes for each message (saying:
"printing" or something similar) appears.

Another way to describe the effect is to think that the output file is not
appended but overwritten with each message.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select and print multiple messages to a (ps) file

Actual Results:  
only last message was outputted.

Expected Results:  
the file should have contained all the messages just as there is a big stack of
paper beside my printer when printing on paper...

Confirming with 1.0+ 20050429. 
It seems indeed that all the mails are sent to the print queue after each other,
but all to the same file, wiping out the previous ones.
