Description David Robinson 2008-02-15 21:30:35 EST
Description of problem:
When restarting the cups service or using the web interface
(http://locahhost:631) the default policies gets applied even though a custom
policy has been defined for the printer.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 5.1

How reproducible:

Steps to reproduce:
1. stop the cups service (command: service cups stop)
2. create a new policy in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
3. start the cups service (command: service cups start)
3. apply the policy to the printer (command: lpadmin -p <printer_name> -o
4. restart the cups service (command: service cups restart)
5. test policy

Actual results:
- default policy is applied

Excepted results:
- custom policy is applied

- after restarting the cups service use the 'lpadmin' command to reapply the policy

Additional info:
This is upstream bug STR #2319, which is fixed in CUPS version 1.2.11.


Patch is attached.
