Patch from

Daemon crashes on (subsequent) IPP requests and needs manual restart after each print job. This makes printing virtually unusable.

The problem has already been reported on Debian [1] and Apple CUPS github [2]. Seems already fixed in Fedora [3].

Bugfix is already merged to Open Printing CUPS repository [4].

Attached patch is extracted from merged pull request [4].

Iā€™m already thinking we should move to the OpenPrinting fork.
