I don't know if this will be of any help to you or not.  I'm posting the 
info from the CUPS log for the last test I just did.

I [04/Jun/2007:10:17:03 -0400] Adding start banner page "none" to job 84.
I [04/Jun/2007:10:17:03 -0400] Adding end banner page "none" to job 84.
I [04/Jun/2007:10:17:03 -0400] Job 84 queued on

It seems it's sending the job or a job to CUPS successfully, but what's 
it is sending appears to be blank, thus the blank pages?  Although it 
does seem that the tmp.ps file is intact and the correct job/page. 
Hopefully that will be helpful to you.  I'll test more later, but right 
now, I don't seem to be getting any errors showing up in the logs and 
that may be because there are none.  CUPS is processing normally what it 
is getting from Scribus.
