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?
