Sure, but it's not a HP issue IMO. Several threads exist with this problem with various Printers from Brother as in this thread, to Epson, to HP...on the web in various Linux distros including more than this one for ubuntu. Does not appear to be printer manufacturer specific, but related to the adapter cable handling by hal. If I find a way to raise it as a hal bug in correctly handling the usb adapter cables, which is what it appears to be, I'll post that back here.
BTW do you know how cups references/uses hal when trying to locate printers? and do you have a contact with the hal owners?
