Problem with OS X Discovering Linux Printers

Apparently recent version of Linux (including Fedora 13 and Ubuntu 10.10) running CUPS 1.4.x have a problem discovering Linux printers.  This appears to be a problem with the CUPS implementation on Linux.  As a temporary workaround, you can run the following command on your OSX system:

cupsctl BrowseRemoteProtocols=cups

Your printers should then immediately appear.
