That large file, 00000000, is a temporary file holding the request
document (generally the file to be printed).  It's meant to be cleaned
up as soon as the request is submitted, so it looks like something went
wrong during job submission *and* for some reason CUPS didn't clear up
the temporary file.

Unfortunately I can't see any situation where this could happen, looking
through the code.  Perhaps there was a power failure?
