I don't consider this one a problem and don't want this behavior to go 
away.  I prefer the users being unable to change server-side settings 
for the printers.  I might misunderstand how that works, but I like the 
way to works now.
To answer the other question, we have 390 or so printers, HP, Sharp, 
Canon, Zebra, Citizen, and Datamax are the main brands.  There might be 
an epson here or there too.  Behavior is uniform across all of them.

The bug you reference is about being unable to upload drivers. I do not 
have this issue at all, and find no issues here.
