Paul, humour me :-)  If it happens again, make the two checks I recommended 
and let us know whether you found the problem there.  Clearly something was 
bunging up the works :-)

I don't use lpstat, so I could be misunderstanding, but it seems to me that 
the command above tells you that the job is being sent, but it doesn't tell 
you whether the printer is accepting input from the queue.  I'm betting it
