Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2006-10-26 09:20:14 EDT
I would like to preserve the configuration state in case it is possible to
replicate this on another machine.  Please do this as root:

tar jc /tmp/cups.tar.bz2 /etc/cups /var/cache/cups

..and attach /tmp/cups.tar.bz2 to this report.  Thanks.

I don't seem to be able to get it to happen here.

Please install cups-debuginfo with:

  yum --enablerepo=core-debuginfo install cups-debuginfo

and then run 'gdb --args /usr/sbin/cupsd -f'.  At the '(gdb)' prompt, enter 'run'.

Does it segfault under those circumstances as well?  If so, what does entering
'bt' show?

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested, 
please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.
