after scanning, printing in cups says that its busy

here's another gripe:

after i scan something (i use xsane), i save the image and open it up in gimp; i edit the picture and try to print, but nothing happens; i check cups and it says the device is busy

the only way to solve this is to turn the printer off and on again

it's a nit-picky gripe, but is it possible to solve this?

i'm using an hp psc2110xi with the latest hpij driver for printing through cups and the latest hpoj driver for scanning

I am having the same problem with requiring that the printer be turned off then on in order to print after scanning. The print driver thinks that the USB port is busy. Has anyone found a way to avoid this?
