In both, for a very short time. The command line lpr report
looks like this:

 	% lpq
 	HP_LaserJet_4000_Series is ready and printing
 	Rank    Owner   Job     File(s)              Total Size
 	active  poly    20      Google - Opera       419840 bytes

Then it disappears after a few seconds

 	% lpq
 	HP_LaserJet_4000_Series is ready
 	no entries

The printer doesn't start to print. If I try this from other
programs (e. g. Gimp, the Sylpheed MUA, or OpenOffice), the
entry is listed, and the printer starts to work. In the web
administration, all jobs are listed as "completed", except
that the Opera printing jobs didn't result in printing, while
the other ones did.
