kprinter and acrobat reader

On a fast Linux box, when I use "kprinter" as the print command in
acrobat reader, acroread tends to delete its temporary output file
before kprinter can call cupsdoprint to send the job. So cupsdoprint
gives and error of missing file. Is there a way to work around this?

IIRC, lp has the -c option to take a copy of the file before sending the
job to get around this problem. My best idea is to write a script that
copies the file and then calls kprinter. Must be a better way though...?
