Bug#751762: gnome-control-center: adding a printer in a large Windows network

Package: gnome-control-center
Version: 1:3.8.3-7+b1
Severity: normal


I was just trying to add a print through gnome-control-center in a Windows
network with about 50 computers. Before I got to choose the printer, I was
presented with an authentication dialog for each of those computers, twice.
Since there was a noticeable delay (often several seconds) between each
of those dialogs, I had to click on "Cancel" for about ten minutes. After
that, gnome-control-center did freeze. No more dialogs, but also nothing else.
I could not click on anything in the control center dialog.

In the end I used CUPS's web interface, which presented me with the list of
all network printers in about a second.
