Agatha broke her CUPS configuration when upgrading her Gentoo workstation. Simply deleting the old printer and creating a new one works. The thing about CUPS is that it just rocks, and only breaks, to our memory, during an upgrade. The configuration for the daemon is in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf. The cool web-based admin tool makes it really easy to manage the printing system. We always forget the default admin URL, though, which is http://127.0.0.1:631/admin. One test that we like to do that is usually problematic is printing landscape and portrait versions of a web page out of Mozilla. Dunno why, but this has often been a problem in the past. Well, with Mozilla 1.4, and the latest CUPS install, all is happy.
