Good point.  That is the behaviour which I observe on my own printer 
also.  There is therefore something else which he is doing which causes 
the printer to get paused (or it may just be because it's a weird 
Samsung printer with its own CUPS driver).

Whatever he's doing, it would be nice to be able to tell CUPS not to 
auto-pause the printer.
