Grrrr. Damn thing was expecting A4 paper and getting fed A3.
Any printer that dies simply because the paper's slightly longer than
expected has a major error-handling flaw, though.
Slightly? A3 is twice as wide (in the axis the printer was worrying
about) than A4. There was paper where there shouldn't been any, hence a jam.
I suppose you could make a case that, on the grounds of probability, an
USER ID=10T error was more likely than a real paper jam, but as it's
otherwise a lovely printer I'm really not inclined to shout at Xerox
much about not assuming the worst about their users.
Maybe they assumed even worse than you --- that the luser fed the
printer with a continuous roll of paper. The best option there probably
would be to just wait until someone fixed the problem.
