After reading the original, then Ken's reply and now Dan's, we all
seem to think a bit differently on this one. My gut feel is that it
is a CUPS thing just not being configured correctly. I've always
found CUPS to be reliable and solid. Once it works, it stays working.

I did notice that I had a helluva time in the 1.1.x to 1.2.x versions
of CUPS. The configuration file is much different now than previous
versions. There was a 10 minute learning curve for me. I had to tweak
the cupsd.conf file to get things working. Especially pay attention
to the 'authtypes'.
