Eliminate delay when opening the Gnome printer dialog on Ubuntu 9.10

Ubuntu 9.10 has a bug that lets the gnome printer dialog wait for several seconds when opened: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk+2.0/+bug/475845/comments/29

Works flawlessly. The delay is gone and I can print as before.
