socket:// ?  Is this printer a local or network printer? If this
printer has it's own network interface and is connected over a LAN, then the
queue on the printer itself may be hung or reporting an incorrect status to cups
causing cups to show waiting to finish... If so, try power cycling the printer
and then restart cups (check the network connections in between as well)

Other than than, I think Andreas has probably hit the nail on the head. See:
