I'm using 2.2.5 on Redhat 7.3.

I figured the same thing after reading the man page, so I was 
kind of surprised when the pdf conversion didn't work and all 
I was left with was the spool file in the share (which converted
fine with ps2pdf from the command line).

I have a couple of things to try, if worst comes to worst then
I'll change back to LPRng, which I'd prefer not to do as I like
the administration features of CUPS.
