Cannot get printer to working in 8.1, it works in 8.0

I have a netgear ps101 print server on a network of 3 computers using NFS
and TCP/IP.

In Suse 8.0, it works fine, but in SuSE 8.1, connection tests OK, but no
test page is printed and I cannot print to it.

One difference I did notice, in SuSE 8.0, It is configured as Forwarding
queue to lp on LPD server On SuSE 8.1, that selection is
not available or rather greyed out in the Advanced setup. Tried LPD
Filtering and forwarding queue and Direct TCP, but these do not work.

How would I get the LPD forwarding Queue so I can select it. CUPS is
installed the same on both machines and lprng is not installed on either
and both machines are using the same laserjet3 driver.

I found the following in the cups_error log.

I [03/Nov/2002:20:50:26 -0800] Job 3 queued on 'lp' by 'afore'.

I [03/Nov/2002:20:50:26 -0800] Hint: Try setting the LogLevel to "debug"

Finally found out how to set the debug level for cupsd. Below is what
appears to be relavent. Can anyone tell me what "D [04/Nov/2002:08:49:32
-0800] Insecure dependency in eval while running setuid at
/usr/lib/cups/filter/cupsomatic line 133." means and how I would correct
