I can't find any mention of "quota" in the web interface of CUPS running
on my laptop here.  There is a possibility that quota is enabled for
some printer, by setting options in the "printers.conf" file though.

Can you show us the contents of the file:

    /usr/local/etc/cups/printers.conf

from your system?

If it contains the options which enable quotas for a certain printer,
you should see something like `PageLimit', then this is the `quota' that
you see mentioned above.

Here is my cups printers.conf file.

# Printer configuration file for CUPS v1.2.7

It appears that this too has no quota on it. Also, the job which I kicked off last night has been processing ever since.

I've included the error log for said job as well.

Thanks
Grant
