Yes, it's quite broken at the moment.  I don't think we can do any more
productive debugging (fixing something breaks something else) until we
have a good set of automated tests for the basic behaviors.

I'm rather worried of declaring the printing API as stable and just
unleashing it to the world.  Is any software *really* using it?  Does it
contemplate things like

	- sites with thousands of printers

	- sites which want to lock-down certain printers

	- color management for apps that need it

I'll be there since Sunday morning.

Thursday is the Advisory Board meeting, so I'm afraid I won't have that
day free for the GTK+ meeeting.
