Other Cocoa apps? Try e.g. TextEdit. I use the Cocoa printing system,  
and don't really do anything related to talking to the printer myself.

I did recently add a (simple) workaround for a system problem that  
would cause printing to give an error, after aborting a print job --  
if that's what is triggering the problem, then try quitting TextMate,  
and from Terminal run:

    defaults read com.macromates.textmate OakPrintInfoDictionary

If the workaround is what gives the problem, you should be able to  
print after having deleted the OakPrintInfoDictionary, but the second  
print job will give the error again.
