One more question, is this on PC-BSD 7.0.x or 1.5.x? Fabry was on 1.5.x, 
and his is crashing there, I'm on 7.0.2, and no problems. I'm wondering 
if the PBI is including a newer version of the cups library which is 
causing a crash when it tries to print, but the port uses the older cups 
lib from the system?
