I used to have cups running quite nicely until I upgraded my system to 
4.8-Release (a fresh install afer fdisking the drive). When I installed CUPS 
on my new system and tried to add a printer, I got the message
Error: The printer name may only contain up to 127 printable characters.
It say this regardless of what I call the printer. 

I fooled around a bit looking on the cups site & mailing lists & this list 
for clues, but came up with nothing, so I left it for a while.
Now I've cvsuped my ports tree, removed cups from my system and kde which 
had installed cups-base, and deleted any leftover traces I could find. Then 
I installed the new port, plus gimp-print.
Now when I try to add a printer, I get exactly the same error. The error log 
file doesn't show any error messages. 

Has anyone got any come accross this or have any suggestions?
