f11 beta can't seem to find my new network printer



  it's been just *hours* since i've whined about something, so here's
another one.  just got a new samsung scx-4826 USB/network printer, and
i have two laptops running right now, one updated f9 and one updated
f11 beta.

  i wanted to configure both laptops to see the printer on the
network.  when i brought up printer configuration on the f9 system and
selected "New", that laptop *immediately* saw the network printer
correctly at 192.168.1.177.  the rest of the configuration was
trivial, and the test page printed fine.

  trying the same thing on f11 beta, the printer configuration dialog
was unable to find that printer on the network, even after searching
for printers for several seconds.  i had to manually enter the IP
address for it that i knew from the f9 configuration.  i didn't
complete the configuration yet, i was just curious as to why f11
couldn't see the printer on the network when f9 could.

  thoughts?  bugzilla?
