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:

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
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.
