its safe to say that 1.1.x works fine, but 1.2.x, that i got from CVS then hangs a lot.

I don't think you mean fork - you mean do 'em concurrently ;-)

im begining to chicken out of this. (i mean the whole CUPS thing) :)

Hehehe, I think we'd be better off if you did this as well
(the PuTTY contact experience should have helped), else I
become again the bottle-neck for progress.  If you are adamant
about me doing the contacting, let me know what needs to be said.

Thanks - I'll await your thoughts and results on point-1 above
as well as comments on how best to do this.

umm, dunno. but i guess we need to 1. contact CUPS, and see if they'll fix it or not. 2. if they're not gonna fix it, we step in.

i'll see which method is best to communicate with'em, probably
the cups-dev list. and i'll send u a letter for proof-reading, OK?
