Because LPRng uses the LPD protocol natively, you are seeing the
remote queue and not a locally-managed queue like CUPS uses.

Because the bug is closed, you can't modify it.  We made it this way
because too many people were spamming bug reports with non-relevant
info after they were closed, reopening bugs that we had no way of
fixing, etc.
