Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results: The hourglass spins forever.
Expected results: It should advance to printer model selection dialog.
The exact same procedure with another Linux distro immediately advances to
printer model selection dialog (correct).
I have hplip and hpijs packages installed. The print server is IOGear USB Print
What does 'rpm -q system-config-printer' say?
I have the same problem on two machines:
rpm -q system-config-printer returns
The out-of-the-box FC8-DVD-ISO installed version seems to work OK as I've
installed two printers OK. But, after the latest FC8 updates to various
programs, the printer-config program gets broken.
When running in a terminal window, I see the following:
Lock acquired for devices thread
Devices thread started
Closing connection (devices)
Releasing devices lock
Acquiring devices lock
Lock acquired for PPDs thread
PPDs thread started
Closing connection (PPDs)
Releasing PPDs lock
Acquiring PPDs lock
