I did use the web interface to configure my printer and everything is 
fine (as far as I can tell).  I was even able to print the test page 
then.  If a retry to print a test page, it stays in the queue like 
everything else.  Of course, the printer is active (status: processing, 
accepting jobs) and the jobs are all released.

No I am using Gnome 2.6.

Another information I forgot to provide you with: the fact that the 
printer is on or off when the workstation is booting does not change 
anything.  Also, both the CUPS server and client are on the workstation.
