I can't find any mention of "quota" in the web interface of CUPS running
on my laptop here. There is a possibility that quota is enabled for
some printer, by setting options in the "printers.conf" file though.
Can you show us the contents of the file:
from your system?
If it contains the options which enable quotas for a certain printer,
you should see something like `PageLimit', then this is the `quota' that
you see mentioned above.
Here is my cups printers.conf file.

It appears that this too has no quota on it. Also, the job which I kicked off last night has been processing ever since.
I've included the error log for said job as well.
Don't be flakey. Get Yahoo! Mail for Mobile and
always stay connected to friends.
