Well, your log said "usblp1":

^^^^^^
:-?

And "ls -l /usr/lib/cups/backend/" shows what available backends?

As of this mornings upgrade shows the same as below but includes usb
now.

How voluble is this USB thingy.

Why would no one else be having this problem? Make no sense to me.

I would review the current open bugs for cups:

I don't usually go to the bugs page on debian.org directly but by the
Google links when I am searching for the 'error of the day' :-(

I do however, maybe wrongly, rely on listbugs so here is what it has
been saying for days now.
Fixed: cups/1.4.8-1
I am running 4.8-2 and an attempt to downgrade reports it could not find
4.8-1.

An attempt to print shows

That's the same log report you got before, right? Nothing has changed.

There is a 'something ?' causing weird mtp-probe call. I'll keep
looking to see if I can figure out just what.

Funny thing is that the same thing is happening on Sid. I wonder how
this got to wheezy in this condition??

One of the Debian bugs I posted before links to this one (directly to CUPS):

http://www.cups.org/str.php?L3884+Qversion:1.5

At least you are not alone on this...
