Ken Yu,
after you changed whatever settings for print queues,
you should not restart the whole OOo again.

You should first launch OOo and open its print dialog
to view what OOo shows initially about print queues,
then change whatever stuff in the print queues,
then keep OOo running but re-open only its print dialog
any check if the re-opened print dialog shows the
actual current changed settings of the queues
(compare my initial comment #0).

If even a re-start of the whole OOo does not adapt
to changes of print queues as you described in comment #2
it is even more broken but in general a restart of the
whole application should not be needed to let it
adapt to changes in the print queues.

A note in particular regarding "default queue":
For CUPS under Linux there are at least two places
where a default queue is defined:

The system's default queue in /etc/cups/printers.conf via an
<DefaultPrinter queue_name>

For each user his own default queue in ~/.cups/lpoptions via an
Default queue_name

For each user the command
lpstat -d
shows the current default queue setting for this user.
This default queue is what also applications should show
as default queue when this user runs the application.

On the other hand it could be a perfectly valid policy
when an application does not adapt its printing dialog
to the user's default queue but simply keeps the queue
which was last used for printing from this application,
provided this queue (still) exists.
