Pat, I analyzed that bug with the help of the CUPS errorlog. 
I'm not guessing here. I'm sure that if you find another application
which produces a PostScript file using /DeviceCMYK it won't print

In your case it's probably another bug since kprinter works for you.
What happens if you print to file and print that with "lpr filename" 
from the terminal?
