cups package bug

When either real root or sudo root runs commands like: lpadmin -d Panasonic-KX-P1123 <cr> Immediately afterwards /var/log/cups/error-log should not contain an entry stating that root tried setting cups default and that the attempt was unauthorized. This potentially means three things:
1) cups no longer supports the printer I'm using,
2) the command line interface for cups is deprecated and its deprecation remains undocumented in favor of the web interface. I'll check this out next.
3) The unauthorized designation is going into /var/log/cups/error-log
   incorrectly for some weird reason; maybe root has to su to another user
   to do these changes so those don't get flagged as unauthorized.  All in
   all, very strange.
