permissions Re: lpr transplantation

I wouldn't say that it's likely, but you might get this if the passwd file was not readable by the lpr user.
You example shows you running as root and finding the info that you need, but the daemon probably runs non-root and seems to have a problem.
Check the other-read bit on /etc/passwd .

When copying files like these, one must take special care to preserve permissions,
but you probably did, and this is some other problem entirely.
