Description of problem:
cupsd process crashes after making any changes in
system-config-printer and clicking "Apply"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-printer-0.6.112-1 and cups-1.1.21-1.rc2.1
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make sure cupsd is already running
2. bring up system-config-printer
3. make any change to an existing printer
4. click "Apply"
Actual Results: cupsd process disappears
Expected Results: cupsd restarted fine

cups 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
No jobs running in any of the test cases.
I see this here now. cupsd is segfaulting shortly after getting the
Please try cups-1.1.21-5.
I have installed cups-1.1.21-5 and tested successfully.
system-config-printer works fine, and the bug can be closed.
