[STR Closed w/o Resolution]

We cannot make the defaults 0755, as that disables all of the security
features added in CUPS 1.2.x.

You are free to make the change locally, however keep in mind that all
proxy authentication and proper LPD support (privileged source port) will
be disabled by the changed permissions.
