printing multiple copies with mac-clients

i have problems printing multiple copies of a document with macintosh clients via foomatic printers. There is always only one copy output.
the foomatic-ppd contains the line:
*cupsManualCopies: True
so AFAIK pstops should generate multiple copies of the document.
It does not and i don't know why. Could anybody help me with that problem?
The pstops filter is definitely started for those postscript-files, but the copies are not generated.
Here is the beginning of the postscript-file as it lies in /var/spool/cups
