I suppose that would be hal trying to make the printer usable...probably
not succeeding with getting the right ppd configured either.

I can tell you for sure that you should not switch back and forth
between cups web configuration and system-config-printer...choose one
and stay with it.

You may be having an SELinux issue...have you been checking the logs
(/var/log/messages and /var/log/audit/audit.log

I would probably use cups web configurator and edit whatever hal
installs because it sounds as if it gets the port correct and the PPD

Logging is your friend, edit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to log a lot more
details and you will know where things are breaking.
