The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 5372
Printers and Faxes shows up empty in 3.2 from an XP client

I have a large CUPS based print system, and the 3_0_x git tree allows me to navigate into "Printers and Faxes" and see the printer list, the 3.2 spins for a while and then shows a blank page. This is a placeholder for me so I know to fix this before release.
Created attachment 3242 [details]
Add get_a_printer_search() which doesn't contact the CUPS server when searching for a name. This speeds up a large (remote) CUPS installation enough that I don't get the client timeouts anymore.
Fixed with git commit of this patch.
