Angry CUPS: Printers.conf and printconf-tui display different information; how do I fix?

hello! can anyone tell me why some printers appear in /etc/printcap and /etc/cups/printers.conf but DON'T appear in printconf-tui ?? These would be printers I added to a CentOS 4.4 system with the lpadmin tool...

Basically I run this:
lpadmin -p success -v /var/isd/SER-A07/printdata -E

and the 'printer' named success (aka file) works for printing, but I cannot administer is via printconf-tui tool.

Please, anyone out there that can help?
