Package: cupsys
Version: 1.1.15-4
Severity: normal

I have a xerox DocuPrint 4025 here that I've been trying to get to work
with CUPS. It can be installed ok using lpadmin or the http admin interface,
but when I try to access "configure" in the http interface to set
default paper size, quality settings, input/output tray etc it loads up
to "Admin" then closes the http socket. In /var/log/cups/error_log:

I [28/Oct/2002:11:37:26 +0800] Started "/usr/lib/cups/cgi-bin/admin.cgi"
E [28/Oct/2002:11:37:26 +0800] PID 4460 crashed on signal 11!

So something's not happy. Seems like cups is barfing on the ppd, but I
can't find any ppd verfiying tools or such. I can't run the cgi script
/usr/lib/cups/cgi-bin/printers.cgi interactively as it segfaults. strace
and one from the woody box at:

It works fine with the ppd for my HP LaserJet 4MV. Both ppds were
vendor-supplied and both work fine in other apps (including OpenOffice).

In the main printing interface, the printer also shows up with
in the dark bar that's the "title" for the printer, to the right of its
queue name (xerox). Shouldn't that be "DocuPrint 4025"? 

Can you tell me how to debug the cgi script? I'll need pretty
idiot-proof instructions (I can usually attach gdb, but not do much
useful with it, and don't know how to rebuild the libs etc to get useful
debugging traces) so it may not be useful.

I've posted the ppds on 
in case that's useful.

Bug existed in the cups release for woody, and persists in sarge (the
same version is in sid).

Dear bug submitter,

This bug was reported against a very old version of cups (older than
in the current stable Debian version "Etch"). About a year ago,
Martin-Eric Racine asked for feedback whether the bug still applied to
the current Debian Etch version, but we did not get any feedback. In
order to not keep around old, hardware-specific, and inactive bugs
around forever, I close this bug now.

Please report back if you still experience the problem with the
current version in Etch; if you can test Lenny/unstable, that would be
highly appreciated, of course. I will reopen this bug then.

Thank you for your report!
