I was using this line in my '.drv; file:
Filter application/vnd.pstoraster 10 rastertokpu

and everything was working great.  Then I added
a 2nd MediaSize to the PPD and the cups system can
no longer find pstoraster.  I've since gone back to
my original PPD file.  I've restarted the cups daemon
countless times.  I'm stumped.
