[STR Closed w/o Resolution]

The referenced bug clearly shows that the problem is in Avahi, and the
crash happens in the Avahi code.

I don't see how there is anything we can do to "fix" this in CUPS; if you
can supply a correct and maintainable patch that can reliably detect when
Avahi is unavailable while still working with the Apple DNSResponder
implementation, file a new bug with the patch attached and we will include
the changes in the CUPS source code.
