Cups getting tired

Howdy.
Im having a headache about cups configuration.
Either i'm plain stupid or cups should rather be called cups-beta.
First of all my situation:
Using Debian SID on my workstation and WOODY on my little file,print and 
webserver with a canon s400 The printer is detected and OK.

Now im trying to setup cups on the server the packages i got installed for 
printing are:

cupsys
cups-driver-gimpprint
libcupsys
cupsys-client
cupsys-pstoraster
cupsomatic-ppd
cupsys-bsd
foomatic-bin
foomatic-db

and all resulting dependancies.

Now to the problems:

Im using http://localhost:631 to configure the printer on the server.

Im choosing "add printer", choose my printer etc. All step by step no big deal 
thats the sense of that wizzard, all goes well (until now) then i choose 
"configure printer" and set my media size to A4 and choose solid colours as 
image type then i click "continue" and the browser (mozilla) says 
"transferring data" for the next hours if i dont stop it (so cups interface 
just doesnt respond anymore).
Next (after waiting with no success) i choose "printers" again and say "test 
printer" and it prints the upper left quarter of the test page over the whole 
sheet.
Im not able to get it to work whatever i do it produces just junk.

The next problem is with the client machine (that might be more a subject for 
the debian-kde list but i assume some of the people there are reading this 
list here too)
In kde's printer manager i added the Canon printer (using karolinas deb's) but 
i can't print test pages to the server and i can't remove the configured 
printer! the remove button is inactive so everytime i install it again my 
collection of non-funktioning printers grows.

If someone knows a solution for this please tell me or let's exchange cups 
config files for checking and comparing otherwise im gonna start to learn ten 
different programming languages tomorrow and read 150 manuals over the 
christmas holidays ;-).
Btw. it worked on another machine (same setup exept using SID instead of 
WOODY)

Thanks
Florian
