Works for me.  Please explain in more detail what things you click and what you see.

after some playing around, its not a bug, just a very unintuitive setup process.

I am trying to set up 2 queues for 1 printer.

The system discovers the printer automatically and assigns its preferred driver. Very nice and fair enough.

When it comes to adding a second (raw) queue however, the port that the printer is connected to is not displayed in the "Select Device" dialog.

I got around this by selecting "Other" and putting the device URI into the dialog, and assigning a raw print queue. 

Perhaps this needs to be reworked a little.

I need two queues, one raw, for windoze boxen to connect using ipp, and the other with the native print driver for linux apps.

I still can't reproduce this problem.  Is the printer switched on when you go to create a new queue?  How is it connected, USB?  What does '/usr/sbin/lpinfo -v' say at that point?

(by the way, run 'lpinfo -v' as root...)

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
