It hasn't changed in sid, the 'parallel' backend is still installed as
0755 root:root. Luk, please note that "parallel" != "cups-pdf". :-)

With 0755 root:root, the backends are run as lp:lp, so I wonder why
the backend cannot access /dev/lp if it is 0660 root:lp. It does seem
to work for other people... Can you please attach
/var/log/cups/error_log after a failed attempt to print?
