I don't think starting a new thread can be right. That would re-invoke
printerJob.print() which even if you can reuse a PrinterJob (something that
was never set out in spec.) you are surely getting a new spool job .. not
a continuation. There a couple of other things I am not sure about either.

I've looked into this - only on Linux - and I believe the issue is that
the test program has decided up-front how many pages it is going to
print and it is paying no attention to the selected page ranges.
Not what the 'user' asked for but it is perfectly within its rights to 
do so.

However the 2D PrinterJob operates in a way where it calls back
asking for the specific pages it wants to be printed and there the
app. must comply. The PrinterJob terminates once it has done.

In the case when the 2D PrinterJob is being used to 'run' a
PrintJob then it must *never* return until the application has
called "end" - or some exception occurs.

So we need to remove the elements that will cause the job to exit.

This works for me on Linux although
a) I have not tried Windows)
b) I have not verified if there are no negative consequences from the 
2nd change.
