Sorry, actually F8. (though I think that's not relevant. It's the cups 
version that's relevant and seems to happen from 1.3.4 onwards.
It was a clean F8 install.
Even stranger, another box I have at work (also a clean F8 install) did 
what you described above, where I only had to remove that line once.
If you look at the timestamp on your printers.conf, you'll see its 
updated whenever you print (after the job is submitted)
Looking at the code, I think it might be a structure member that's not 
initialised and therefore whether or not this happens can be 'random'.
(Didn't go into that deeply, just wanted it to work and was getting 
quite annoyed that I was blowing away a day just to be able to print)
