Cups+Gimpprint crash

Hi there!

I'd like to use cups, for it was running smoothly on my
debian3.0. I did install it, it's working so far, but only with the
hpijs driver or the cups-drivers, which are quite lousy, I want the
gimp-print drivers to work. I can configure a printer with these, but
the thingy crashes... some excerpt from the error.log:

Well, I DID set LogLevel to debug, if anyone wants to read it, check, but I can't see any valuable

Now, I've seen this error quite sometimes on google, but there was
never any real help, the only  quite-helping thing was  that the
debian cups packages prior to 1.4.2 (or so...) were broken. So, I'd
really appreciate any hint what I should do in order to get cups and
gimpprint together, versions are 1.1.18 and 4.2.5.
