From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.08 [en] (X11; U; OSF1 V3.2 alpha; Nav)

Description of problem:
When creating  an lpd queue for cups (and subsequently creating an entry in
/etc/cups/printer.conf) redhat-config-printer-gui does NOT make an appropriate
to the entry in /etc/cups/printer.conf.  That is, going to the queue type page,
and clicking
on the "Strict RFC1179 compliance" button does nothing.

A typical entry in /etc/cups/priint.conf looks like:
DeviceURI lpd://hostname_here/lp

However, with "Strict RFC1179 compliance" it should look like:
DeviceURI lpd://hostname_here/lp?reserve=yes

The  consequences of this is that the cups backend lpd does NOT communicate with
many lpd
daemons (for example,  lpr-0.50.5-1).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. select printer that is lpd
2. select edit
3. select queue type
4. click on "strict RFC1179 compliance " button
5. click "OK"
6. click "apply"

Actual Results:  No changes in printer.conf file in /etc/cups/printer.conf

Expected Results:  An option should have been added, as noted in above
