problem when starting printer / printconf-gui


I am running RHEL 3 ES and I cannot start printconf:

[root@freedom etc]# /usr/bin/printconf
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/printconf", line 9, in ?
import queueTree
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/", line 945, in ?
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/", line 102, in __init__
if cups_import.import_needed ():
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/", line 200, in import_needed
which = which_spooler ()
File "/usr/share/printconf/util/", line 195, in which_spooler
return which
UnboundLocalError: local variable 'which' referenced before assignment
[root@freedom etc]#

What I have done so far to resolve the problem:
I reinstalled the following RPMs:

The error remains the same.

What I have done since it last worked for me:
* Changed the IP address of a network interface card (hardly relevant to this problem)
* Updated to Taroon release 3 via redhat network (up2date)
* installed all the latest errata via redhat network (up2date)

What printer do I use (probably not very relevant for this issue, but just for complete information):
* Konica Minolta Magicolor 2300 DL with foo2zjs printer driver

This is it. I really cannot explain how this could happen to me as I am very careful with changing something on the system. I never install new software or something beside the errata released by RedHat.

Any help appreciated.

Best Regards,
