As far as I understand, a regular job is started with StartJob and ends
with EndJob, no multiple calls of these functions. And I understand a
job cancel as being done by sending a SIGTERM to the renderer and then
the renderer catches the signal, calls CancelJob, closes the connection,
and exits. The CancelJob function implemented in the driver library
should close down the job in a way so that the printer gets back to
accepting new jobs.

I do not know where multiple StartJob/EndJob/CancelJob would be needed.
