Thank you for bringing this bug to our attention. However, a paper cut should be a small usability issue, in the default Ubuntu 10.04 install , that affects many people and is quick and easy to fix. So this bug can't be addressed as part of the project.

The Samba Browser is not included in the default installation and most users don't install it, so this is not a paper cut.
For further info about papercuts criteria, please read

Don't worry though, This bug has been marked as "invalid" ONLY in the papercuts project.

The sorting would need to be implemented in the system-config-printer display, so moving to system-config-printer.

Patches welcome. I think this needs to be done with a TreeModelSort.
