CLX-2160: broken driver? [solved]

Hello riki,
i've appreciated your driver very much, used it for 2 years after installation.
Now i'm setting up a new system on a different pc (it will be a lan server with cups), donwloaded your new drivers, followed your instruction about building.
Now when i send locally a print-test-page request then my clp-2160's green led start blinking, lcd tells "Printing..." but nothing else happen. After a few seconds cups don't show the job anymore.
Did new code break compatibility?

I can't stop this job from the printer itself, i'm forced to shutdown printer and open it again :(

Edit: forgot to mention, i run latest Kubuntu Linux.

What does this say:
$ cd foo2zjs
$ foo2qpdl-wrapper -p2 testpage.ps > xxx

$ qpdldecode xxx
...snip...

$ nc 192.168.xxx.yyy 9100 < xxx  #For a network printer
-OR-
$ sudo cp xxx /dev/usb/lp0       #For a USB printer

???

doh.. it works.
The "bug" then is related to cups?
In Cups i've set 2 printers, same usb device but one set as gray and one as color.
Whatever i set as default printer, your command gives me a gray redhat printconf page. Only one device (lp0) appears in /dev/usb.
I've printed already 30+ pages to test different configs, but still no clue how to fix :/

Anyway, thanks for your test commands or any future advice!

LOL!
It automagically works now. I've set networks stuffs on the fly, my lan is perfect.
Mystery of the life O_o
