"Dumb" questions are usually the right kind to be asking, it's bound to
be something basic that I missed. :-)  However, everything looks ok:

# ps -eaf | grep cupsd
root     21413     1  0 14:04 ?        00:00:00 cupsd
# lpstat -a
ps4 accepting requests since Jan 01 00:00

I do find the "Jan 01" date a bit odd, but printing is functioning
normally from outside of samba on this host.
