In case anybody is curious about this problem I described, I used the
"-debug" option to print to learn that lpr was being invoked with
"-l".  This explains the behavior: this option tells lpr not to
process the input but send it directly to the printer.

The workaround is to modify _print_parse_opts_.m to remove the -l
option.  I have a bug report filed and am hoping for a better solution
some day.
