Package: cupsys-client
Version: 1.3.5-1+b1
Severity: minor
File: /usr/share/man/man1/lpoptions.1.gz

I misinterpreted this statement in the manpage for lpoptions:

       When run by the root user, lpoptions gets and sets default options  and
       instances for all users in the /etc/cups/lpoptions file.

I thought that, if root uses lpoptions, those options apply to the
userids in /etc/cups/lpoptions.  A few other packages that have that
kind of behavior, though it's not common.

When I looked at the lpoptions file itself, I realized what the
manpage meant.  So perhaps:

       When run by the root user, lpoptions gets and sets default
       options and instances for all users, storing the data in the
       /etc/cups/lpoptions file.

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)
