Thanks for you bug report, more information is needed.
What printer do you have an which driver are you using? Please run the following command on a terminal:
apport-collect -p cups 568363
Which kind of document is this 15 page document (pdf, odt, odp, ods, ...) and from which application did you print it?
Can you attach the document to this bug report?

Ok, I run apport-collect -p cups 568363.
It was 15 page PDF of scanned document printed from Evince.
No, I can't attach it, as it contains private data.

ghostscript (9.04~dfsg~20110721-0ubuntu1) oneiric; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
     - GIT snapshot from July, 21 2011.

       bug #691755, LP: #568363, LP: #668800).
  * debian/symbols.common: Updated for new upstream source. Applied patch
    which dpkg-gensymbols generated for debian/libgs9.symbols to this file.

We can get even by another factor of 12 faster (measured with stars.pdf of bug 668800), with ghostscript 9.04~dfsg~20110721-0ubuntu2

---------------
ghostscript (9.04~dfsg~20110721-0ubuntu2) oneiric; urgency=low

  * debian/patches/1001_gstoraster_nointerpolate.patch: Make CUPS filters
    call Ghostscript with the "-dNOINTERPOLATE" option. This makes the rendering
    of the input files by a factor of 12 faster. This should really eliminate
    all complaints of LP: #568363, LP: #668800, and other "printing too slow
    bugs".
