eggcups is an entirely different animal now. If it's polling every
five seconds, that's probably not what we want..
This is probably eggcups polling (via libgnomecups) for new (and

the printer list changes instead of polling.
This should be fixed with the latest libgnomecups and cups uploads
which should show up after FC2t2.
