Problem with CUPS: need to enter password for lp and lpq several times

I'm using CUPS (cupsys-1.1.20final+rc1-10) in Sarge and have a problem
using any functions that require authentication.
If I want to print a document using lp, I have to enter my password
three times before it is accepted. If I want to query the status of the
printer queue using lpq, I have to enter the password five (usually) or
four (rarely) times.
I see similar issues when I'm trying to access the web interface. I can
login to the main menu without problem, but if I try to access the jobs
listing, I am prompted for the password for what seems to be an infinite
number of times.
I am quite certain that my mistyping the password over and over again is
not the cause of this problem. :)
