This is because you installed testing with a daily image. We moved a
lot of 2nd stage stuff back to first stage, but testing's base-config
has not been updated (and we not be soon as this would break installs
made with the beta1 release of the installer).

Yep, this seems to be such an issue. lpr was probably installed (as
part of the base system?), then installing CUPS as part of the print
server task leads to what you saw.
Also possible is some package in the print-server task which would
still trigger lpr while it now conflict with cupsys. *This* could be
an issue in tasksel, then.

Hmmm, I'm afraid I don't really see what you're talking about here...
