No, of course we don't. This is also not what the original report
said. The problem was that the rewritten cupsd.conf dropped an ACL
line ("Cups then re-wrote cupsd.conf, removing the line.")

We do not have any intrusive patches or behaviour changes in Ubuntu
any more. We just need to adapt some default settings and file
location, i. e. packaging.
