in this case I suggest to try to use CUPS command-line tools
instead of the CUPS web-fronted - or can you perhaps somehow
manually specify the queue name also via the CUPS web-fronted
(I don't use the CUPS web-fronted or other graphical tools).

Have a look at
therein the sections about
"Command-line Tools"
"Command-line tools for creating or editing queues"
and in particular paragraph about
"How to set up a print queue in full compliance with CUPS"
