am annoying bug is that the printing dialog and with it the application
freezes when a CUPS dserver is not answering requests. See
Unfortunately, Mike Sweet, author of CUPS, refuses to solve the problem
on the CUPS side. See
So every application which uses the CUPS API to list available printers
and their capabilities and also sends jobs needs to take this into
account, for example by asynchronous access to CUPS.
Can you take this into account for the Common Printing Dialog?
