Description Tim Waugh 2008-05-07 15:36:18 UTC
Description of problem:
The foomatic-rip filter can go into a busy loop when the CUPS backend fails. 
Observed with an smb://... URI for a password-protected share, with the
gutenprint-ijs-simplified foomatic driver for an Epson Stylus D68.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
foomatic-3.0.2-59.fc8

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up an smb:// queue with no auth info in the URI, pointing at a share that
is set to refuse guest logins.
2.Use the recommended Epson Stylus D68 PPD, i.e. gutenprint-ijs-simplified
(foomatic).
3.Print a job.
4.Run 'top' and observe CPU usage.
  
Actual results:
foomatic-rip is busy-looping

Additional info:
It's because the foomatic renderer process is not correctly collecting the child
process's status and propagating it.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2008-05-07 15:46:48 UTC
Fix checked into devel.  Requires further testing with newer upstream
foomatic-filters.
