wine printing does not work

I have a few programs installed in wine and an HP Laser Jet 4101 networked printer installed with cups. Wine sees the printer but when I try to print from it from notepad.exe for example I get this error message:
lp: unable to print file: client-error-bad-request
To my understanding this means that lp thinks the file/data it is receiving is incorrectly formatted. I changed most of the files in /usr/bin that started with lp* to be symbolic links pointing to /usr/bin/lpr. Would this cause a problem or is it something else?
