That makes sense.  The print queue will have to be a nice clean freshly 
laundered one that way.  Still, I would love to know where the "hidden" spool 
file is.  This has happened to me more than once. And I assume the web 
interface to cups will work as well as the kde printer manager - I am trying 
to wean myself off kde-dependence.  I'll give it a try in the morning, and 
print off my much-delayed job...

Thanks to all.
