I had the same sort of trouble but was able to fix it by specifying
*xp-spooler-command: /usr/bin/lp -s
This suppresses console output from lp, so it looks like the output
(printjob ID) from lp is confusing Xprt somehow.
Debian sarge, kernel 2.4.25 on a k7
The printer is a HP5550 on another machine running the CUPS server.
Hope this helps
