gnumeric no longer starts

For the past week I have been unable to get gnumeric to start, even with
a blank sheet. After poking at it a while, I discovered that it is
connecting to the lpd daemon on my systems and hanging with the daemon
running at about 6 or 7% of the CPU forever. If I kill lpd, gnumeric
Any idea what gnumeric is doing that causes it to connect to the daemon?
An important issue (and the more likely source of the problem) is that I
run LPRng (ports/sysutils/LPRng) on my systems. I suspect hat this is
causing the problem, but it is SUPPOSED to be fully compatible at the
socket layer with the standard lpd. A new version went into ports last
week and that is almost certainly when the trouble began.
N.B. I don't really think that this is a gnome issue. I'm just hoping
for a clue to lead me in the right direction to troubleshoot this.
