That was it! I was using the CUPS driver. When I switched to the  
Script-3 (Brother's Postscript 3 emulator) it all worked. It takes a  
bit more time to print (I've got the memory maxed out so that isn't  
what's holding things up) but now I know it's printing everything.

That's two times in two days!!! :-)

Good Luck,
