Description of problem:
When polling cups printers form a cups server and Printers containing "_" in the name, the client shows the printers with "-" instead. This makes the Print Queue not available any longer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Every time you poll for a Printer with "_" in the Name
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set the BrowsePoll in /etc/cups/cups-browsed.conf to a server containing Printers with "_" in the name
2. systemctl restart cups-browsed.service
Printers are shown with "-" in the name
Printers should appear with "_" in the Name as shown on the cups server
Workaround: in /etc/cups/client.conf add: ServerName <servername>
but it should work to just put it in cups-browsed.conf
Fixed upstream in revision 7306.
