Is there a printer redirection problem following the installation of SP3?

I read about a terminal services printer redirection problem on Windows 2000 after the installation of SP3. Is there such a problem? If so, does it apply to the terminal server itself and the clients running sessions, or just one or the other? Is MS going to fix this problem?

A search of slashdot, ntbugtraq, and other sites does not list such a post-SP3 vulnerability -- Which is not to say it's not the case, the Internet creating such a level of information overload the way it does. If such a bug exists, the best source for "When will it be fixed" will be going straight to the horse's mouth -- If you do not already subscribe to the announcement service for MS Hotfixes, go to and sign up, it's quite the life-saver.
