I don't think its a kernel bug. I just did a new install and am using
kernel-2.6.14-rc1 (i also tried the Debian kernel-2.6.12). To use
printing i did this: 

install lpr and magicfilter
run magicfilterconfig to create a /etc/printcap file for my Epson
start the daemon: /etc/init.d/lpd start
check that i have /dev/lp0 (with UDEV i had to make this)
run lpc status -> shows if printing is enabled

See if all the above checks out, then try to print and check the logs.
