This sounds more like a udev problem, and somewhat like what I'm
having right now with lp0. It just stopped working:
(0) heretic /etc/udev_ checkpc
Warning - cannot chdir to '//var/spool/lpd' as UID 1000, GRP 1000 - 'Permission denied'
Warning - bad directory - //var/spool/lpd/lp
Warning - Printer_DYN 'lp0' spool dir '/var/spool/lpd/lp' needs fixing
(0) heretic [root] /root_ checkpc
Warning - lp0: cannot stat lp device '/dev/lp0' - No such file or directory
