I agree and sent a mail some months ago to debian-devel (is the lpr
maintainer listening?)

The reason for this misbehaviour lies somewhere in rmjob.c where
the FQDN is compared with the hostname, which always fails.
[This was originally meant as security fix].
I was too lazy to fix lpr (not being the maintainer); the hostname
is written somehow into the spool-control file, while the FQDN is
queried in the usual way (AFAIR); I reverted lpr in the end to 5.9-11.
