I don't know if this will fix your problems, but I had a reasonably similar
issue. The solution quite simply consisted of this in the main section of


<blah blah blah>
   printing = cups
   printcap name = /etc/printcap.cups

(this seems to work better than 'printcap name = cups')

and then ...

  <other directives>
  printing = lprng

And finally put the generic [printers] section AFTER your specific
'printers' :)

Well, it worked for me =)
