OK.  I took your previous post literally when you indicated that Printer 
Setup Utility would alter the cupsd.conf file ("this file").  I know of 
no action through the GUI that alters this particular file.  

Yes, the Printer Setup Utility does write to /etc/printers.conf, 
/etc/ppd, /etc/classes.conf.
