Hi,

Might be a software corruption of some kind. You could try resetting the printing system totally:

Mac 101: Printing (Mac OS X v10.6) said:
To reset the printing system (if necessary)

Control-click or right-click a print queue in the "Printers" pane.
Choose "Reset printing system..." from the contextual menu.
Click "OK" in the "Are you sure..." confirmation sheet.
Let us know if that helps,

C
