I'm sorry for the late reply.

On Feb 18, I upgraded the system and tested automatic-download in the
proxy environment.  But it failed. When I checked the cause of
problem, it seems to be the problem not only in the system but also in
my test environment.  Now I am still investigating.

By the way, system-config-printer became 1.3.1, and it disabled debug 
option "-setup-printer" and "--devid". (It's not a bug but inconvenience 
for developer, I think.) Therefore I tested with the actual printer. 
But system-config-printer didn't start when I plugged the printer.
