Bug#319284: foomatic-db-gutenprint: Unable to read printer database
Another followup: I *can* duplicate the problem. For reasons I'm not
entirely certain of (yet), foomatic-db-gutenprint and
foomatic-db-gimp-print don't coexist nicely. If both are installed,
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption (!prev): 0x081465d0 ***
So, it looks like a bug in foomatic-configure (part of
foomatic-db-engine), probably the C-based XML parsing code it uses.
