Since I no longer have this printer (it served me well for 20 years), the bug is no longer a problem.

Twice before I've had the correct one, only to have an update bring back the wrong one. The correct one is what I get when I select the "old" PPD while installing the printer using Kubuntu's System Settings. The wrong one goes into duplex mode automatically and doesn't recognize the request to turn duplexing off.
