Bug Description

I have the HP PhotoSmart Pro B9100 (connected via USB) which seems to be the wide (A3) version of the PhotoSmart Pro B8800. The latter is now officially supported, but the former has already an entry in models.dat with nearly the same settings, especially the same cartridges and print heads. For the B9100 I modified models.dat somewhat: color-cal-type=7 (3 does not make sense for a printer with 8 individual cartridges), support-type=2, support-ver=2.8.4 (pretend that it is officially supported). Now I try to do the color calibration from the hp-toolbox and the calibration page does not get printed. There is no error message. Running hp-colorcal on the command line in debug mode shows that only 2 bytes are sent to the printer (probably commands) but the printer seems to ignore them. See output below.
