I have this line in my printcap file:

Without knowing so much about the way apsfilter works, I guess 
are parameters for apsfilter. So, you should not play around with these.

Try printing a testpage with your old printcap (; instead of :).

Yes, you were right. This problem is not fixed in the current KDE
packages and you should file a bug. The parsing of the printer name
from the printcap file does not work properly. It should stop at the
first pipe '|' as pipes separate alternative names for the same
printer. However, it does not.

A quick workaround is to login as root and to set in the KDE
Control Center under System/printer the correct printer name.
Then printing should work for you even with KDE. :-)
