You have a max speed of 1m/min so just do a G0 and that will assure its at the fastest speed you can do.

Are you still using the power supply to power the opto?
Try using your computers 5v and see if its better, you can grab the 5v from either a USB or a spare molex connector, if using the molex then 5v is red and black is 0v.

Have you tied the 0V of the bench supply to the 0V of the parallel port?

You may not get a correct signal if you dont as your bench supply may be at a different potential than your computers supply.
I would however think you would get erroneous signals at all speeds if that was the problem though.
