Running a default install of SuSU 9.1.

Network printer/file server via stock binary install of Samba.

CUPS seems to hang when tyring to print larger print jobs 10+ pages or so, the queue will fill up with print jobs but the large one will hang everything up. Usually occurs when printing large IRS pdf documents from IE on a Windows XP workstation. Clearing that print job will allow printing to continue without restarting CUPS.

Google searches indicate a bugzilla report on RH 7.2 but no real workaround/fixes.

Any help appreciated.
