In the catalog preferences, under System → Devices → Printers, all of the indexed printers are named “PrinterProxy”. Ideally, they’d be assigned the name in System Preferences.

Confirmed on Snow Leopard (assuming you're using Lion?)

It should also remove duplicates. I have the same printer listed as a 'printer' and 'scanner' in the Print & Fax prefs, it shows up twice in QS's catalog.q

At the moment, a basic file scanner is used to populate this catalog list.

I don't understand why the names PrinterProxy are used, as a basic file object is created which initially has the name of the file.

Yeah, I just checked and the string “PrinterProxy” doesn’t appear anywhere in the code. But here’s a clue:

% mdls ~/Library/Printers/*.app | grep PrinterProxy
kMDItemCFBundleIdentifier      = "com.apple.print.PrinterProxy"
kMDItemCFBundleIdentifier      = "com.apple.print.PrinterProxy"
kMDItemCFBundleIdentifier      = "com.apple.print.PrinterProxy"
kMDItemCFBundleIdentifier      = "com.apple.print.PrinterProxy"
kMDItemCFBundleIdentifier      = "com.apple.print.PrinterProxy"

Found the problem, should also improve the names of various other apps. See #793
