Public bug report changed:

It seems related to using a custom ppd (through "Install Driver"...). Because of bug #21003, I had to install a phantom IPP printer instead of the real LPR printer to have the driver installed. Now I can choose that driver for a new printer, but the printer is not added.

Adding a local printer with this driver fails also... So I can only conclude that my problem is the custom installed driver, and not that it is a network printer. Which unfortunately is not like the original description of this bug.

gnome-cups is so broken it is really difficult to isolate bugs or debug them...
