At first sight I wouldn't seen a common point with this bug and yours
(logs differ or maybe we have been looking into the wrong place) but
upagrading cups will tell if this is what is hitting you :-?

I would not have wasted the lists time/bandwidth with this thread if I
had known that apt-listbugs was not reporting 'unusable' packages.

That's why I pointed you a link listing of all of the CUPS bugs >:-)

The bug is known upstream and is being looked into.

Thanks Camaleon, old dogs can learn new tricks.

You're welcome. Hope the fixed package reaches wheezy very soon.
