But I will point out that utilities like lpadmin fail silently, claiming to have created a printer without actually doing it, as late as RHEL5. The "created" printer even works... until the next reboot, at which point no evidence remains that it ever existed.

Have you submitted a bug report about that problem? As an administrator of RHEL5 for this example, maybe you should contact the technical support Even the best administration will need help and the biggest mistake IMHO is to keep the problem for oneself.

I knew you were going to ask that. No. I did not waste my own and others' time filing a bug against an ill-conceived package. I'd rather they be working on useful things. And that is where I prefer to spend my own time, as well. Which is to say that I have wasted as much time on this thread as makes any sense.
