cups returns malformed UTF-8
Status in cups package in Ubuntu:
This is Ubuntu 12.04, libcups2 1.5.3-0ubuntu4.
I noticed gedit and evince were crashing whenever I opened the print
dialog. I'm attaching an example stack trace from gedit.
Eventually I traced the bug to CUPS. gedit crashes in GTK+ code when
trying to process an invalid UTF-8 string starting with "Параметры,
разрешенн". That string comes from my PPD file (will attach), and its
byte length coincides with the size of ppd_group_t::text in CUPS,
which means that it's being improperly truncated within CUPS.
