I've attempted to do that.  I've created new print queue, and marked it as raw.  I've pointed WinXP box to this new spool.  And got same results (or lack of them, to be more precise).  I've bumped LogLevel to debug2, and I can see from log files that cupsd received the job, that the job was destined for print queue that is raw, no errors, no warnnings, and not a single byte sent to the printer device?!  Should I reopen that bug ticket?
