Printing via network KDE4 SLOW

Printing is almost unusable in KDE.
I’m running 11.1 here with KDE 4. I have a HP printer via LDP setup. It prints quickly when logged into the Gnome enviroment, but slow (about 5 minutes) when logged into KDE 4.

Since there is no longer a KDE print utility, I used Yast to configure it, double checked it with the local CUPS server, and all is OK. It just seems to be KDE…

Any help would be appreciated.
