Not lame to be answering your own post. Somebody else (like me) may have had
the same problem and was waiting for someone (even you) to provide an answer.

I had this issue intermittently. Thought it was due to low resources on those
instances. Now I know it was a bug and I fixed it. Thanks again.
One last question: I first went into the "Server Configuration" instead of
the kprinter configuration. Seems no server is specified in this cups
configuration tool. Would specifying 127.0.0.1:631 make this whole thing
I am used to using the browser interface http://127.0.0.1:631
