I'm not convinced.  The day that Woody became the stable release, I had 
already done an "apt-get -t testing dist-upgrade", just like a thousand 
times before.  It upgraded some cups & related files, which I thought was 
odd.  Since then, cups has been non-functional.  It'll accept jobs, and 
the web interface shows the printers as being online and ready, but jobs 
never get to them.

In /var/log/cups/error_log, I get the following:

E [26/Jul/2002:07:47:37 -0500] PID 4984 stopped with status 22!

This was after a remove & purge of cupsys and some dependencies, then a 
normal "stable" apt-get install of cupsys & overlay of old configuration 
files that hadn't changed (that I can tell) since before the upgrade.  
Before, previous "PID XXXX stopped with status 22!" messages referred to 
other filters.  

The error above may mean that I should delete the printer in question and 
re-install it, since the /usr/lib/cups/backend/canon backend doesn't 
exist, but I'm not convinced that something isn't broken in cups at the 
moment, possibly in testing/sid.
