Does the term "bounce queue" refer to the two queues described in the
printcap man page (shown below)?
If so, you may need "lpq -Plj5-remote" instead of just "lpq" to see the
job after it passes through the lj5 queue and into the lj5-remote queue.
lpq and lprm seem to work for me with the -P option.
