Reopening as this is not fixed in Jaunty, multiple reports show.

According to duplicate bug 368273 this seems to be hitting i386 but not
amd64, which might be the reason why Brian failed to reproduce it.

A workaround to be able to create printers (using IP address) is
described in

Adding samba task since the crash is probably related to libsmbclient.

A nearly identical crash in _nss_mdns4_minimal_gethostbyname2_r is
tracked in bug 359088. I suspect it's coming from the same bug.
