Yeah, I changed that, too, except for the first line, it's the same.
Should the printcap name really be "cups"?

        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        load printers = yes

# It should not be necessary to spell out the print system type unless
# yours is non-standard. Currently supported print systems include:
# bsd, sysv, plp, lprng, aix, hpux, qnx
        printing = cups
