localhost - - [27/Jun/2006:08:35:13 -0400] "POST /printers/laser HTTP/1.1" 200
138 Get-Job-Attributes client-error-not-found

In error_log, the following message repeats every 5 seconds:

status unknown.

Expected results:
No errors, eggcups applet greys out, job status window indicates that job has

Additional info:

Filed under cups because the problem started occurring when I updated to latest
cups errata release.

This is a very annoying problem on a laptop as status messages keep the disk
