A significant omission!  I can see the problem now.

checkpc has not found your printers and goes into some strange state
because of this.  checkpc -V is not displaying the list of printers
which is what it should be doing around the Init_tempfile area.

I think checkpc is not properly parsing the files correctly when it is
using an executable filter.  I have a test rig setup here and can see
the same problem.
