Ok, I wanted to test several times before replying, so here are my 
results.  I assume you wanted me to output a file from Scribus to print 
using the lpr command?  Just to be safe, I also did just a text file.

text file printed normally
.ps file from Scribus printed normally
Using alternate command with either lp or lpr in Scribus worked normally.

So, where do we look now?  If your theory is correct, the lpr command 
should not have worked printing a file produced by Scribus or from the 
alternate command line.  Is that correct?
