Package: libcupsys2
Version: 1.1.20final-15
Severity: normal

When I run gnumeric, it hangs for about ten minutes during initialization
The strace output stalls at an attempt to connect to a CUPS server:

  fcntl64(17, F_SETFD, FD_CLOEXEC)        = 0
  setsockopt(17, SOL_SOCKET, SO_REUSEADDR, [1], 4) = 0
  setsockopt(17, SOL_TCP, TCP_NODELAY, [1], 4) = 0
  connect(17, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(631), sin_addr=inet_addr("")}, 16 <unfinished ...>

I happen to be on the road, so the machine normally running my CUPS server
is not available.  I expect more graceful handling of this case, as
we don't want applications to (appear to) stop working just because a print
server is down.

I'd file this bug against the gnome print system, but I notice that the KDE
print system has the same bad behaviour (kprinter hangs on initialization).
Therefore I'm assuming the issue is with libcupsys.  Please reassign if
that's not the case.  Or perhaps the timeout can be adjusted someplace--
please let me know.

Some (long) time ago you filed this bug against cupsys or a related 
package. In the meantime the cupsys package has been renamed to cups and 
this bug was "lost". Since it is quite old now it is being closed.

If the issue you encountered is still present in recent cups packages 
(as released with Debian 7.0 wheezy for example) the CUPS maintainers 
would very much appreciate a fresh report using

    reportbug <package>

(you should also mention the number of this bug if you think it contains 
valuable information).

Please note that further information sent to this bug is likely to 
remain unread, because the bug is currently not assigned to any existing 

Thank you for taking time to report bugs found in Debian packages.

Kind regards,
Andrei (with no relation to CUPS maintenance)
