Me too, but even stranger, I do not remove the print jobs and they print
fine as soon as I enable the printer again. This is usually after a power
outage or some temporary problem with the main print server. For some reason
client cups instances get offended by the server and disable the printer.
Then after I fix the real problem, I have to go around re-enabling printers
on all the clients.

Would it (should it) eventually notice that the server is back and re-enable
itself just as automatically as it disabled itself?
