Nothing is working, regardless of whether I try to print from Muttprint,
or with Frank's setup.  In either case I get this error message:

Press any key to continue...cannot remove path when cwd is
/tmp/muttprint-GOauzJ for /tmp/muttprint-GOauzJ:  at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.10.1/File/ line 902

I'm beginning to wonder if this doesn't have something to do with the
fact that my printer is installed via CUPS.  There may need to me a
special parameter set up in .muttprintrc.  But so far I haven't found
any info on it.
