Bug Description

Binary package hint: cups

Printer used to respond in seconds, but now a typical status is "Job 589 - Test Page - Brother-HL-1440 - 150K - 43 minutes ago - Processing"

Seems to print quickly when the job reaches the printer. Same problem with USB and LPT. Sometimes it finally prints if I wait long enough (I think). Once, when I canceled the second job, the first job began to print.
