Description of problem:
I am using a pl2303 usb-to-parallel cable to drive my old laserjet 4
from my new computer.  When setting up the printer,
system-config-printer hangs with an error message about "auto is
returned before it is assigned", in line 1392 of file
/usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_conf.py.  I changed the line from

return { "auto" : auto }


return { "auto" : "" }

I was subsequently able to set up the printer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  use a pl2303 cable to attach a parallel-port based printer to the
test computer
2.  use system-config-printer to try and install the printer

Actual Results:  system-config-printer hangs

Expected Results:  I should be able to install the printer.

Thanks.  Fixed in CVS (I think the correct line is "return { }").
