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)
