Version: 1.1.20 User: twaugh.redhat

When 'AuthType Basic' is set for 'Location /', running 'lpstat -h server -a' asks for a password four times. Three of these times seem to be caused by lpstat calling cupsGetDests() once.

Isn't there some way of avoiding this? Really I should only have to type in my password once when I run lpstat.

Known bug in the authentication cache (STR #517) which has already been fixed for 1.1.21.
