Problem with system-config-printer.py

Again, thank you for your response.
The LD_LIBRARY_PATH as my user is set to /usr/local/lib. This is the
default setting by a default user with F9. There are no libraries in
/usr/local/lib, so there isn't a conflict.
Since this is repeatable simply by trying to set up a printer from the
desktop, I would think others would be running into it as well. Am I
the only one? Or does everyone else know the manual process so well
that no one bothers to test/fix the wizard? This is not meant as a
criticism. I'm just looking for a solution, and I want to know the odds
of finding someone that has figured it out or is working on it.
