CUPS not reporting number of pages

I'm using CUPS 1.2.0 on Ubuntu 6.0.6/Server with the HPLIP drivers.

I'm printing to a Laserjet 5MP. Printing is fine but CUPS reports that all jobs have exactly one page. Is this a CUPS problem or a HPLIP problem?

I've tested from a wide range of programs and operating systems all printing over IPP and no matter how many pages are sent, the job is reported to have one page.

Note that I did change a whole lot of stuff to get the CUPS web interface back to normal (Ubuntu purposely cripples it) but AFAIK that shouldn't affect actual printing.

the /var/log/page_log file mirrors what I see:

HP voltagex 57 [18/Aug/2006:14:42:39 +1000] 1 1 -

so it isn't a web-interface problem.
