printer-state-time is 0

"lpstat -p epson870" returns:

  printer epson870 is idle.  enabled since Jan 01 00:00

If I enable/disable the printer the time always says "since Jan 01
00:00".  This is true even for lpstat on the CUPS server system.  The
time on the system is correct and is kept in sync with NTP.  Any idea
what would cause this or how to fix it?  The system is Linux (CentOS 4)
with CUPS 1.1.22 from the vendor.
