Re: gnumeric is inexplicably broken on my machine: Now working

Gnumeric is now working---again, inexplicably!  The only difference I can see is I am using icewm.  I haven't 
upgraded any packages.

I'm having this problem at work now myself. I've not yet had time to
investigate fully, but so far it looks like cupsys is broken again.

You can try
- downgrading libcupsys2 to 1.1.20final-14 . -15 doesn't seem to have my
  workaround anymore
- rm/mv-ing /usr/lib/libgnomeprint/2.4.2/modules/

It doesn't appear to stop responding.  Lots of messages like this:

I don't suppose this would be helpful though.  

Actually it is. It fits the "cupsys related loop" hypothesis.

I have steadily endeavored to keep my mind free, so as to give up any
hypothesis, however much beloved -- and I cannot resist forming one 
on every subject -- as soon as facts are shown to be opposed to it.
