[filmscanners] OT - Epson 1280 ink "monitor"...

Perhaps someone here can explain this...  I have an Epson 1280.  I have been
using it to print documents that require only black ink, and selecting in
the driver for it to print black only...and the documents are word
documents, that have black text only.

Well, the color ink has been steadily going down, according to the ink
monitor!  Again, I haven't printed a THING that doesn't use black ink
only...and in fact, I can keep printing, even though it claim the color inks
are out, because the documents I am printing only use black ink.

So, where did this ink go?  I see three options:

1) the ink "monitor" has a bug.
2) the printer still uses color inks even though black only is selected.
3) since it decides on its own to do cleaning cycles every now and then,
it's basically
        using the colored inks running cleaning cycles.
4) it takes evaporation into consideration ;-)

I'm skeptical of #2, as I can still print black only documents.  I'd guess
#3, but really, that's a LOT of ink to just piss away on cleaning cycles,
literally 1/4 of the cartridges and the black has gone down 1/4th, which is
being used.

Hum.  Anyone else notice this type of thing, or have any other theories?
