User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031010

Description of problem:
When I perform a full compile of foomatic db (a lone invocation of
"foomatic-compiledb"), in the middle I get the following error:

  ...printer HP-PhotoSmart_P1100, driver pcl3
  ...printer Epson-FX-1050, driver omni-compiled
  ...printer Xerox-DocuPrint_N4512_PS, driver gimp-print
Cannot read file
Cannot read file
Printer file
corrupted, missing, or not readable!
Could not run "foomatic-combo-xml"/"foomatic-perl-data"! at
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.1/Foomatic/DB.pm line 509.

Error in child...

The file Xerox-DocuPrint_N4512_PS.xml doesn't exist in fact, but a
file named Xerox-DocuPrint_N4512PS.xml exists.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora with foomatic and gimp-print-cups
2. Run foomatic-compiledb
3. Wait until it reaches Xerox-DocuPrint_N4512_PS

Actual Results:  Error occurs and compilation is aborted

Expected Results:  Compilation progresses until all PPD files are
