The effect is the same, cups has no permissions to do the final writes that 
would enable the use of this printer.

I ran into essentially the same thing when I went to setup my F10 machine to 
use the printer on this one, a share that has worked flawlessly for years, 
but now suddenly does not.  Co-incidental to having a drive fail, and 
installing the Fedora Unity August 2008 respin of F8 on a fresh drive & 
getting all my data back with amanda.

It isn't exactly life and death that it doesn't work as I do have a working 
printer.  But the security paranoia that seems to pervade the Fedora camp 
since the server hacking incident does seem to have something to do with 
this, and whomever installed these so-called security enhancements that are 
screwing with our ability to use the hardware we have purchased, surely must 
know by now that it is getting under our collective skins, and making this 
user who has been a RH-Fedora person since RH5.0, look carefully at other 
distros.

And mine is set permissive ATM.  Zero difference, I still have a printer I 
can't use.  One that is about 20x faster than the one it lets me use.
