Bug ID: 383305
           Summary: Endless loop when configuring a printer from central
                    CUPS server and permission denied (403)
           Product: print-manager
           Version: 0.3.0
          Platform: Gentoo Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
  Target Milestone: ---

When attempting configuring a printer e.g. from a central CUPS server which
responds to the 
POST /admin/ HTTP/1.1
request with 403 (Forbidden), configure-printer enters and endless loop,
retrying and retrying the "POST" tens of times per second. 

This leads to severe network contention and fills the logfiles of CUPS servers,
so I regards this as a major issue in environments with a central CUPS server.
As a solution, only killing "configure-printer" or restarting KDE helps. 

To reproduce: Enter the printer configuration via PlasmaShells tray, configure
any printer from a central cups server, and click "Apply". 

Let me know if more info is needed.
