I have just tested with a Hardy Alpha and the usb backend problem is
still there (output string changes/disappears/reappears over time, can
be made to disappear on one terminal as mentioned in
). However lpinfo -v now shows a hal backend and the hal backend seems
rock solid even when the usb backend is all over the place. There are
seemingly times when lpinfo -v will change the order that backends are
shown but the hal backend remained unwaveringly the same despite this.

$ lpinfo -v
