I'm glad you got to the bottom of this. That's fairly strange
Can you try a change to drivers/parport/ieee1284_ops.c please?
Basically, at line 130 or so there is a line:
udelay (1); /* hold */
Try changing the '1' to a higher number, like 100. See how high it
needs to be before it starts working. Let me know if you need help
building a kernel to test.
(This is particularly weird because I also have this printer.)
