A printer that had previously performed without problems has suddenly
stopped printing jobs. Here's the detail.
Printer: HP LaserJet 1300
Connect: Parallel to USB
Printer prints its (internal) test page fine.
When the USB cable is unplugged and replugged dmesg finds
usb 2-1: USB disconnect, address 3
drivers/usb/class/usblp.c: usblp0: removed
usb 2-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4

drivers/usb/class/usblp.c: usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 4 if 0

The CUPS interface sees the printer as its supposed to be.

The problem is independent of the type of printing. That is, plain text
is no better than HTML.
Restarting the daemon, rebooting the system and power-cycling the
printer has no effect.
