Well, in most cases I print PDF files (from xpdf or directly with lpr),
text files (via lpr), and sometimes spreadsheets and textual documents
(from openoffice.org).
As a consequence, a workaround that solves the issue for PostScript
files only is of little use to me...  :-(

I really hope this regression may be fixed soon.

Debian CUPS Maintainers, may I have some sort of response?!?
Is this a problem with some filter setup?
Or is this a bug in cups code?
