Problem printing Self-Test Pages

Good morning everyone,

I'm being unable to print self-test pages on some printers, on my CUPS server (Debian 'squeeze' + Samba 3.5.6).

Error message I'm getting is the following (in /var/log/cups/error_log):
E [25/Jan/2012:08:54:55 +0000] Returning IPP client-error-document-format-not-supported for
Send-Document (ipp://localhost:631/printers/Fotocopiadora) from localhost

And also this message in /var/log/cups/access_log:
localhost - - [25/Jan/2012:08:54:55 +0000] "POST /printers/Fotocopiadora HTTP/1.1" 200 281
Send-Document client-error-document-format-not-supported

Through CUPS Web Administration Tool I get:
Unable to send command to printer driver!
Unsupported format 'application/vnd.cups-command'!

My printers.conf shows this info about the problematic printer:
<Printer Fotocopiadora>

Re: Problem printing Self-Test Pages

The issue is that the PPD file lists application/vnd.cups-pdf, which makes cupsd think it is not a simple
PostScript printer and cannot use the standard PostScript command filter.

Please file a bug (and include the version of CUPS you are using):

    http://www.cups.org/str.php

In the meantime, the regular Print Test Page stuff should work...
