> I am trying to add a new printer. Everything works soundly until I press "continue" in the model/driver web page. Then a process eats up almost all of my CPU, and stays there until I kill it (admin.cgi). The web page goes blank, the bottom line in firefox says "transferring data from localhost".

The relevant error from /var/log/cups/error_log (debug2) seems to be:

d [22/Aug/2005:17:15:23 -0300] IsAuthorized: Checking "root", address = c0a80005                                                        , hostname = "mymachine"
d [22/Aug/2005:17:15:23 -0300] ReadClient: Unauthorized request for /admin/...
