Blank pages from CUPS printing

Some time ago I took the recent advice and switched to CUPS printing.
Yes, it just worked for me too, hurrah!
A few extra blank pages but I could live with it.
Now I am printing from Win2000 using my linux box as a spooler.
Jobs come out preceded by 3 blank pages!
Pages recycled by stuffing (even carefully) back into the trays
get eaten on the second run! Help.
Anyone know how I can inject a "Suppress blank pages"
directive into the print system?
Under System V printing on Solaris I used to have a filter
to strip HP PCL headers and unwanted leading and trailing ^Ds
from all the samba generated jobs.
Anyone done anything like this in CUPS?
