A hint in NG de.comp....linux was wonderful: timeout! CUPS has
a KeepAliveTimeout  in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf  , default 60sec.
The digitus DN-11002  seems not to send signals "I'm printing .."
to the PC so that every minute the job is requeued. I increased
to 500sec a two tests with 20 pages were successfull so far.

Perhaps some specialists here can explain this phanomen.
