[Printing-architecture] printers.conf frequently gets truncated to zero length after unclean shutdowns

As I mentioned in the initial mail, I've had a patch
which makes cupsdOpenConfFile() read filename.O in case filename is 
truncated to zero.
Previously the filename.O was read only if filename had not existed.
Wouldn't that be an alternative ?
