20.3 on Windows/95: "print-buffer" problem

running "GNU Emacs 20.3.1 (i386-*-nt4.0) of Wed Aug 26 1998 on ESME" on 
Windows/95 shows the following defect:

By default "printer-name" is set to "PRN", and thus "print-buffer" 
produces an error like "c:/something/PRN: so such file or directory".
Experimenting I found out that setting "printer-name" to "/PRN:" 
invokes ange-ftp 8-), while "/PRN" works.

The environment is Windows/95 with Novell Netware 3.12 login. I had to 
use "capture" and "endcap" in a DOS-box to make it work (no local 
printer attached).

BTW: Traditionally many printers expect DOS (CP850 or similar) charset, 
while Emacs typically uses ISO-8859. It would be nice if printing could 
convert the charset...
