You can add another printer (I mean, another stanza for the same printer,
your "Phaser 6280DN") from CUPS that uses the desired PPD (instead PS,
try with PCL5/6 or another generic file) just to use it to print jobs
from Acrobat Reader.
Not a solution at all, I know, but Acrobat Reader is closed source and no
devel is be able to look into the code so you can only wait until Adobe
fixes it... (take a chair and wait :-P)
