Default Cups wedged print jobs

This is the first in a series of at least 3 cries for help, each on a separate sub-part of my goal of making sense of cups, lpd and Windows Vista.

I have cups (fully updated) running successfully on my Gentoo system, except for one thing: sometimes a job fails to print at first ( don't bother asking why -- I don't know and cannot reconstruct it now).* This has left a few jobs in the cups queue.* I could delete them, but I would rather print them.

The problem is that although cups can print new jobs, I don't know any way to get it to go back and print the three that are there now.* Here's what it's telling me:

treat kevin # lpstat -t
scheduler is running

system default destination: lp0
device for lp0: parallel:/dev/lp0
lp0 accepting requests since Sun Apr 13 13:07:25 2008
printer lp0 is idle.* enabled since Sun Apr 13 13:07:25 2008
lp0-155**************** kevin************ 4096** Fri Mar 28 15:04:34 2008

lp0-156**************** kevin************ 4096** Fri Mar 28 15:04:44 2008
lp0-235**************** root************* 6144** Sat Apr 12 20:11:37 2008
treat kevin #

The printer is an HP LaserJet 4m, direct attached by centronix cable to the machine where at least the first two jobs originated.
