User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020314

Description of problem:
The princonf-gui utility configures numeric entries in /etc/printcap
with an "=" sign instead of a "#" sign.  This is VERY ANNOYING as lpd restart
over writes manual corrections.  

The error can be found in /usr/share/printconf/util/printconf_backend.py
 on lines:

    523                                 'ml=0',
    524                                 'mx=0',

By the way "mx=0" trashes your ability to print large documents (1000 
page plus).

Many thanks,

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start x
2.start princonf-gui
3.configure a test printer
4.cat /etc/printcap and you will get "mx=0"
