Package: cups-filters
Version: 1.0.61-5+deb8u3
Severity: important
Tags: newcomer

Dear Maintainer,

Printers shared from other cups systems with _ in their names appear with the name changed so all underscores '_' become dashes '-'.

There is a similar bug-report in rhel7 (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1230862) solved by an update.

I think this same fix should be applied to jessie. This causes serious breakage when printer names are saved 
in work processes or applications, or when users move between systems. (wheezy does not have the bug)

   * What led up to the situation?

Upgraded a server from wheezy to jessie. Printing in our in-house application stopped working.
Investigation found that the printers in jessie all had the wrong name (ZZ2-office-2844) instead of correct name (ZZ2_office_2844)
