If you have jobs in the queue, and there is some problem with one of the
filters, each time you enable it the next job will fail and cause it to
become disabled.

The way around that is to clear out *all* the jobs in the queue.  Cancel
them all.

After that, running the troubleshooter should get you enough information
to report a bug.

I know that you now have your printer working, but I'd be very grateful
if you could re-visit this and have another go at getting
troubleshooting information about this problem.
