[Pkg-cups-devel] Bug#391648: cupsys: Unable to configure a local printer

Package: cupsys
Version: 1.2.4-2+b1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


if I try to configure a local printer at LPT #1 via
http://localhost:631/admin the browser freezes and the cpu usage of

/usr/lib/cups/daemon/cups-driverd list 1 0 requested-attributes='ppd-make'

grows up for both near 50%.

The browser freezes and the driverlist isn't loaded. I have to kill
-9 all processes owned by lp. At the moment I cannot verify since
this problem exist. The printer worked well one week ago.
