lpq and lpstat don't show the expected output. They only print (several) empty lines.
Printing itself via lp works, cups(d) is setup properly.

Downgrading only cups package to old 1.5.0-2 give back the lpq, lpstat functionality.
Recompiling 1.5.2-1 with up-to-date system dont't solve this...

Additional info:
* package version(s)
cups 1.5.2-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
~ # lpq
<empty line>
<empty line>
~ #
Similar with pstat -p or lpstat -v

Downgrading to 1.5.0-2 (don't need to restart cupsd)
~ # lpq
Samsung_ML-2010 is ready
no entries
This task depends upon
