Just to confuse things, since I got it working OK @home last night, I added my
home printer (hpphoto3200).
scheduler is running

It's not hanging now? (Please clarify.)

Somehow it looks like my comment got lost? Here's what happened:
This is a notebook used @home and @work.
1. Never hung @work
2. Hung repeatably @home 2 days ago.
3. @home there was a cups server (F7 box) on the lan
4. Yesterday, @home did NOT hang
5. But, 2 things changed:
5.1 F7 box shut down (no, I can't repeat this experiment. That box is gone
5.2 Updates from devel applied to f8 devel box
So, it's not hanging, but it's not clear if that is because of 5.1 or 5.2
Okay, it's a shame you can't get it to happen any more. If you see it again
please re-open this bug report. Thanks.
