Added info:

I logged out, logged in as root to see if I could set it up.  It was already 
defined!  Logged back in as a user, printer was flagged with a problem.  
Opened Gnome Print Manager. Decided to edit the printer - this time it asked 
me for a root password and let me edit it.  I found that it was set up as Raw 
rather than as a PCL6 that I had tried to set up.    Changed, and the printer 
now works.

I will definitely look for this in bugzilla and make an entry.
