I ran into a similar issue on my wife's laptop from a clean install of
F15. I opened up CUPS (621?) using s-c-f but it did not work. I added
it manually.

I haven't had a chance to see what it takes to reproduce the problem
since everything but my MythTV box is already upgraded, but from this
thread it looks like it's a real bug.
