Changing the order state straight to processing when payment is taken

Hi all,

I have a requirement that when an order is placed in Magento, the invoicing stage is skipped and the order goes straight to processing (instead of pending).

I’ve found that modifying the payment config I can change the default state from pending to processing, see here:


However, when I’m viewing the orders screen and choose the print shipping labels action, it doesn’t work for the orders that have the above change applied.  It therefore seems that I need to change something somewhere else to have a valid processing stage.  Could someone point out what this could be?
