I'm happy enough with workaround under precise and plan to upgrade quantal any day.

Let me know if you need more info or tests.

Just to make sure I understand: I did upgrade to quantal and then raring without the need to ever change anything since I did 'lpadmin -p E250d -o usb-no-reattach-default=true' and reported this bug.

Would I need to do anything when this land ?

When the fix lands, you do not need to do anything. You can even remove your workaround via

lpadmin -p E250d -R usb-no-reattach-default

as CUPS applies the change automatically for you. Also any new computer you set up with Raring (or newer) will work with your computer out of the box, without applying any workaround.
