I'm having major loss of functionality. Accutaly, nothing works.
On cupsysd error_log shows:

E [14/Apr/2006:16:57:53 +0200] Unable to save remote.cache - Permission

On gnome-cups-add error log shows:

E [14/Apr/2006:16:58:04 +0200] [CGI] unable to
open /var/run/hplip/hpiod.port: No such file or directory:

Last two lines are very indicative. I saw couple of bug reports with
same issues.

I can use all network backends (ipp, smb, lpd...), but no local
backends (usb, parallel, socket...). 

Printing on IPP shared printers works fine :)
