i am in full understanding of your reasoning and desire to find *where*
failure is coming from.

with no more response than you have of one other poster so far, would
this not tend to show that it would be something you 2 have in common
in configuring your system? granted, it is something that should not
happen. but it is.

therefore i would think that you and andy need to see what you have in
common in setups, permissions, and paths, etc.

also, a request for others who are using cups, if they would check
cupsd.conf and printers.conf files to see if authentication line
is present.

then, if you have a large response of line present, you have narrowed
you search to other than just cups.

just a suggestion. use it or not.
