Because this has not been implemented or not been implemented properly.
It's a bug in any case.
OK. do you know by any chance bugzilla number or should I file a bug on
or is this known and I should just wait? (A search on the error
message to bugs.kde.org
did not yield result).
I wonder how do the rest of you set up printers, via system-config-printers
still ? If that's the case, I wonder how other distros that runs KDE set up
printers since I thought system-config-printer was Redhat's stuff. Do they use
CUPS directly ?

Because Qt didn't load your CUPS defaults. This should be fixed by a Qt
patch included in our big KDE 4.4.0 update.
Great. Looking forward to it.
