[Printing-architecture] cupsd crashes when Avahi is used

at Ubuntu many users (> 2000) hit the following bug:


It is an assert failure in a function of the Avahi library which makes
the CUPS daemon abort, naturally only if CUPS uses Avahi which is the
case in Ubuntu.

The Ubuntu patches on CUPS do not change anything in the Avahi support,
so the problem most probably also occurs with other distributions.

Anyone has already observed this problem? Can it be a CUPS bug? If it is
an Avahi bug, is it already known?
