I found the explanation and workaround for this problem. There's a bug report at http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4615473.html.
It seems there's a bug at JDK1.4.0 (build 1.4.0-b92) in the printer lookup services. Printers that have non-alphanumeric characters in their name (such my "epson_bravo", see the "_") aren't discovered.
