The remote Mandrake host is missing one or more security-related
The default configuration of module-init-tools was to send a HUP
signal to the CUPS daemon whenever the 'usblp' kernel module is
loaded, for example when a USB printer is plugged in. Due to udev
also sending a HUP signal to the CUPS daemon on pluggin in a USB
printer there were two HUPs one shortly after the other which often
makes the CUPS daemon crashing.
The updated module-init-tools package removes the usblp call
responsible for this bad behaviour.
