xpdf just uses lpr to print files. it's a bug in cups component if you
got the errors.

I have tried to print your pdf file in fc2, it works for me. Perhaps
you forgot to start cups service. Please try to start cups with 
/etc/init.d/cups start" before printing.

Since the message appears on the *printer*, it may well be that it
needs a firmware update.

You haven't mentioned which type of printer you have, but it is well
worth checking with the vendor to see if there is a firmware update
for it.

Assuming HP 4000/4100 series printers, this is a known bug triggered
by  bad postscript with overlong print headers.

HP acknowledge there is a problem and have no intention of fixing it.
