Unforch, I have only two working methods to print something, and lpr
isn't one of them. I can print a test page correctly from cups
(1.1.19), and I can print about anything I can import into the GIMP.
Anything else sent to any of my 4 printer cues, for 2 seperate
printers, actually comes out as a full bleed, light grey sheet of
paper. Nothing else, no odd patterns or anything, just a full bleed
light grey sheet comes out of the printers.
I posted it to the cups list and was apparently ignored, no replies
for 2 posts asking about it.
One thing I haven't tried is to print to file, using that ppd, and
then do a 4 or 5 line bash script to copy it to the printer. I used
to do that on my amiga so I could reprint a book as many times as I
wanted, by just copying the page files to the printer again.
Eventually of course, one must do space patrol and delete the page
files to make room for the next big printing project :(
But that seems like really beating around 720 acres of the bush to me.

I believe OOo can open a pdf, so no file conversion would be needed,
but the last time I checked, OOo was among the ones printing the
plain grey pages.
