usb printing problem

   Is anyone on debian ppc sid having printing problems with
usb printers? I seem to have developed some severe ones with
BenH's current kernels. I also now seem to have the same issue
with my older kernels so its hard to figure out. My Epson 740i
causes hotplug to load the usb/printer.o module and I get...

usb.c: registered new driver usblp
printer.c: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 4 if 0 alt 0
printer.c: v0.8:USB Printer Device Class driver

however I find that lprngtool is unable to print directly to the 
device and if I do 

cat /etc/hosts > /dev/usb/lp0

the output is accepted by the device without complaint but
nothing happens with the printer. Any one else seeing issues?
