[Pkg-cups-devel] Bug#520739: cups: printing with brother hl-2030 does not work

Package: cups
Version: 1.3.8-1lenny4.1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

As of late I cannot print with brother HL-2030 anymore. I assume an
upgrade of cups must be the reason for I did not change any setting.
The print job stay for some time in the print queue, then disappear
and are regarded as completed.
The printer is idle, accepting jobs.
>From a debian/lenny which uses the same printer in the network,
printing is still no problem.
Reinstalling the appropriate drivers did not help either.
