Applications freeze when trying to print

Since some time I have a strange printing problem:

If I try to print on paper (as opposed to printing to file which is OK) from Konqueror or GhostView, the system freezes.
The only solution I found so far is to kill the process (Konqueror, for most of the time). Imho the shell gives no hint:

$ konqueror
fcntl: Bad file descriptor
fcntl: Bad file descriptor
khtml (jscript): WARNING: Javascript: access denied for current frame '' to frame ''
KDirWatch: /etc/security/fileshare.conf is a file. Use addFile!

Before I had a similar problem after I changed the server name - localhost to openmedia. This time I did not make any apparent changes, or I made them without realizing what I was doing. Anyway, it's hard to trace back.

Another related printing problem is that Mozilla doesn't print at all.
I can't print from GhostView either, but from Acrobat it's OK.

I am sure I don't provide enough information here, but I don't know what else to tell. Does someone have any tips?
