Have you tried setting the log level to debug or debug2 to in
I had a problem exactly like you mention here once, and doing that
led me to the problem. I don't remember what exactly was causing it
any more, but I made it go away by reading the debugging logs (and
looking at my logs, it's been more than a year since I had the
problem -- where does the time go?).
It will tell you exactly what you think is wrong in /var/log/cups/
error (that's where it lives on my Debian machine).
(sorry if you said you already did this, but I deleted the earlier
mails an don't know if you mentioned it).
