Default Laser Printer printing intermittantly, CUPS bug?


I'm having difficulty printing on a Brother HL-1450 laser printer
that has in the past worked fine with my Debian Sid system. When
attempting to print a PDF, sometimes it will print the page fine,
but other times (actually most of the time now), it will print a
page with only this on it (often followed by a blank page):


This is while using lp to print PDF files like so:

% lp -d Brother_HL-1450_series -n 1 -P 2 some-file-1.pdf

with the latest versions of Cups:

% apt-show-versions cups
cups/sid uptodate 1.5.2-10
% apt-show-versions cups-filters
cups-filters/sid uptodate 1.0.13-1
% apt-show-versions cups-common
cups-common/sid uptodate 1.5.2-10

Not sure if the error log tells much:

root@gaia ~ # cat /var/log/cups/error_log
W [11/Apr/2012:23:35:29 -0700] Avahi client failed: -26
W [11/Apr/2012:23:35:39 -0700] Avahi client failed: -26
W [11/Apr/2012:23:36:00 -0700] Avahi client failed: -26

Any thoughts as to why printing is not working here?
