GNOME Printer Setup Tool: "-" button deletes printers without confirmation

Bug Description

If I click the "-" button in the printer setup tool the selected printer gets immediately removed, without any confirmation pop-up.

One can easily remove the wrong printer or easily click "-" instead of "+", so it happens easily that one accidentally removes a print queue.

This is a regression compared to Quantal. There system-config-printer was used which did it correctly.

Thanks Till, can you report those issues to GNOME as well? Lowering the importance, there is no dataloss in deleting a printer you can always configure those back, it's annoying but it's not a high importance issue
