------- Additional Comments From jvdias at redhat.com  2006-03-12 13:18 EST -------
This bug is fixed: perl programs passing in the length bitfield parameter to 
ioctl will now get the correct length, instead of the default 256; as a result,
system-config-printer works fine. 
The upstream refinement to this patch was to retain the previous 256 default
as a minimum length; ie., if the ioctl did not pass in the length, and the
argument is less than 256 bytes in length, then it is made to be 256 bytes.
This does not affect system-config-printer, and is a new bug - I'm closing
this bug and raising another to document it.
