print/cups: since update to 1.7.1: error : Send-Document client-error-document-format-not-supported

Since the update of print/cups from 1.5.X to 1.7.1 I'm unable to print from LibreOffice,
Firefox or Claws-Mail, but I can print LaTeX created documents via xpdf or Postscript
directly by naming the printqueue.

Checking the access- and error logs of cups when failing, I always see this weird message
(not for the particular queue, but for all):

 "POST /printers/OJ8600PRO_SW_A4_simplex_draft HTTP/1.1"
200 36510 Send-Document client-error-document-format-not-supported

[Client 14] Returning IPP client-error-document-format-not-supported for Send-Document
(ipp://localhost:631/printers/OJ8600PRO_SW_A4_simplex_draft) from localhost

This happens with the "rescued" configuration of the printing system as well with a
brand-new setup. Googling reveals, that maybe /var/db/cache could be the culprit, but I
deleted all files there as well as other spool folders and I already setup each printer
from scratch since I suspected changes in the configs.

Has anybody ideas where to look further?

I was wondering if I might be the only one with trouble after that cups update.

Please CC me when responding,

thanks in advance,
