I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "Ubuntu's not using gimp-print".
Do you mean that your printer requires gimp-print but CUPS isn't finding
it? Did you get it working? If you did, telling the Ubuntu team about it
would be a good idea.

And yes, the error in the cups log leaves a little to be desired. It's
possible that cranking up the verbosity level could help. I haven't
tried it myself - I fixed my problem by making a wild guess based on the
error in the CUPS log, but it's possible that it could have been more
specific if the verbosity level was higher.
