Applying a different PPD to a specific printer

Anyone else run into this? I am trying to apply a specific PPD to a single printer agent that will use the internal renderer (a printer that isn't working with the default) via resolution 3 in TID 7013074 (https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7013074) making the assumption that process still works for version 1.1. The driver is applied successfully using that method, but it's only good for one print job. The next print job won't go through unless I go through the process again and reapply that PPD. I noticed that after applying the driver, but before sending a print job, that printer's entry in the iprintmobiledb.xml file contains a driverid line with the PPD I just applied. After a print job goes through, that line disappears.

We're running version 1.1 of the appliance. I've seen the same thing with two printers, a Ricoh Aficio MP2852 and a Ricoh Aficio AP610.
