Browsing Off is not actually turning off browsing

Description of problem:
I've turned off the browsing support in the cupsd.conf file and Cups is still populating /etc/printcap with a bunch of networked printers. This is annoying because samba then shows all the printers when you go to \\hostname\ from a windows machine. I'm on a campus network that easily has 50-60 shared printers, so it's a pretty hefty list to sort through just to find a share.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start cups
2. browse to \\hostname\
Actual Results: Many networked printers shown even though browsing has been turned off
Expected Results: No printers should have been listed
Are you still experiencing this problem with FC5 or FC6?
