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 usually don't run into any such problems since I also run cupsd on
every machine, so the cups server is always localhost. That local cups
server then either polls another server or listens to braodcasts picking
up printers. If you are not connected to the network, your printers
simply disappear...


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.
