Further: Redid my whole cups setup.

1. Removed all the policy stuff from cupsd.conf. This allowed gnome-cups-manager to 'see' the ppd stuff.

2. stopped cupsys

3. deleted /etc/cups/printers.conf, /etc/printcap and, importantly, /var/cache/cups/remote.cache (this is key)/

4. How everything works *until I change something using gnome-cups-manager*, which rewrites /var/cache/cups/remote.cache, may cause cups to crash, and, on restart I have laser at remotehost vice 'laser', and no default.
