This is consistent with the libcupsys problem that cups hangs when the
printer server does not respond.

The cups problem can bite you in unexpected ways - until you think about

I had configured cups on my laptop to pick up printers from the cups
server, adding "ServerName" to /etc/cups/client.conf.

Fine when in the office, but when I was traveling, gnumeric wouldn't
start. Because the cups server wasn't accessible from outside.

Actually, after a while it gave up trying and timed out. But that was
after *I* had lost patience and given up.
