Hi all,

Frank's email was the first I got. That resolved my problem. I did not get a
chance to try out Christophe's solution, but my thanks to both!

I had the same problem. I got around it by editing the model file located
in /etc/lp/interfaces/model.orig

Change the line:
  paper = "def"
  paper = "letter"
