Bug#489975: [Debian QA] please review your old bug reports against CUPS
I did a little research and i think that this bug corrected in version 1.3.9-6.
I've found it in the changelog from the cups package:
[ Martin Pitt ]Jean
* debian/rules: Install the serial backend with 0744 permissions to make it
run as root, since /dev/ttyS* are root:dialout and thus not accessible as
user "lp". Thanks to Chanoch (Ken) Bloom. (part of #506181, LP: #154277)

You reported a bug against the CUPS package in Debian a long time ago (#489975)
and the maintainers are wondering if you can still reproduce the bug
using version 1.4.4-1 that is currently in Debian unstable?
I have no idea - I'm not using serial printers any more. Sorry I can't be of more help.
