Bug Description

I have by accident choosen a not connected printer for a print task out of thunderbird. I tried to move the print job from the queue of the not connected printer to the connected printer. That failes.

Reproducing procedure:
1. Make sure to reproduce on a system whith at minimum 2 printers are installed.
2. Disconnect Printer1. Make sure Printer2 is connected.
3. Open up thunderbird and choose a mail.
4. Use within thunderbird menue -> file -> print and send the printjob to the disconnected printer1.
5. Click on the printer1 queue indicator(right upper corner) and see the print queue window popping up.
6. Click on the print job with the right mouse button and choose the move to dropdown menu point -> Choose the connected printer2.
7. See that moving operation fails and the printjob is not done on printer2.

Expected: It would be helpfull if the moving printing job option would work.

Seems like a GTK+ bug. Should be worked around in current 1.4.x (the relevant commits are 8cdc6a7, 0f83c0a, b6fd62a).

Tim, are these fixes already applied in 1.5.x? In which version exactly? I need this to know whether Utopic and Vivid are already fixed.
