Supress Form Feed

I am using CUPS 1.2.4 on a RHEL 5.0 x86_64.
My problem is that every time a print job is sent through to a RAW printer, be it System V Printer or otherwise, the printer always form feeds at the end of each print job. This is not a big deal for laser printers. However, this behaviour is less than ideal for tractor fed continuous roll paper. I have been just about everywhere on the net searching for form feed supression and am always led back to printcap or System V filters. I don't know if it is by design, but settings within printcap do not even seem to affect the print jobs. That leaves me with System V filters. My filter was very basic...
Even that caused a form feed. Any ideas?
