I had set the script to be executable, logged out/in, and it just doesn't seem to matter. Starting a bash shell and checking SETPRINTERS shows that the variable isn't getting set. All I can think of at this point is perhaps DISPLAY isn't being returned like the script wants? In that case, perhaps the script is running, but not finding any matches? I use LDAP for authentication (shouldn't make a difference, but ...)
I plan to go in to the school this weekend and will double check on it then.
