Most likely it's some wrinkle with the way cups-pk-helper works.

The "extra" time is actually the first one, after clicking New.  After
cups-pk-helper had been developed, CUPS 1.4 introduced an extra
authentication requirement by default for fetching the list of available
devices.

So I think there are two things:

1. cups-pk-helper perhaps isn't working right when invoked as root
2. cups-pk-helper needs a PK operation for "fetch device list"
