The solution is to apply this patch to cups 1.4.4 and recompile it.

This way, you can keep gnome-vfs and use cups 1.4.4 and printing works again.

This fixes the problem at least here with :
- Slackware64-current
- firefox 4.0b7
- cups 1.4.4

It has still to be confirmed on :
- slackware 13.1
- slackware64 13.1
- slackware-current

With both firefox 3.6 and 4.0beta

cups has been upgraded to 1.4.5, but this bug is not fixed yet.

However, I can confirm that Bourdieu's patch works with cups 1.4.5 and 13.1, both in 32 and 64bits.
