For some unknown reason a "mystery" printer is showing up in FF's selection of
printers. This printer does NOT show up in 'lpstat -t'. It is not in
/etc/cups/printers.conf. And I know for sure that I uninstalled the (stupid)
deamon that finds new random printers (don't need or want that sort of "user
friendliness"). Is this a Ubuntu issue or a Firefox issue or a Unity/Gnome
issue? I have not seen this on my CentOS machines, ever. It only seems to
happen on the diskless Ubuntu machines I set up using DRBL.

Yes, that is the intent.
Right, I want the printing to go through the CentOS 6 server and not have the
various workstations queuing to the printer itself.
Yes.
Yes. Not what I wanted, but the MFC-9970CDW is a picky beast.
Yes. How do I stop it?

Well, the Centos's avahi-daemon is not reporting the printer, but the
avahi-daemon on Ubuntu server (and the Ubuntu workstations are). If the avahi
daemon is not running, will that cause other problems?
