This problem probably is a result of the modifications in
src/winsup/cywin/path.cc introduced in version 3.373.
lpr.exe uses cygwin_conv_to_win32_path() which now is forced to check
for non-absolute pathnames only:
path_conv p (path, PC_SYM_FOLLOW | PC_NO_ACCESS_CHECK | PC_NOFULL);
path_conv p (path, PC_SYM_FOLLOW | PC_NO_ACCESS_CHECK);
lpr.exe probably should use cygwin_conv_to_full_win32_path() for a
remote printer (and a local printer too?).
