Sorry I don't know where the bug is but, resorting to the RedHat 7.1
printconf and printconf-gui fixes the problem.

  rm /etc/printcap
  rm /var/spool/lpd/epsonStylusColor800
  rm /var/spool/lpd/HPpsc750

  rpm -U --oldpackage printconf-0.2.8-1.i386.rpm
printconf-gui-0.2.8-1.i386.rpm
  checkpc -f 
  #configure printers

Printers come back to life.

This seems to be the same bug as bug #54913.  Are you still seeing the problem?
