  cups 1.7 crashes Brother MFC-9420CN when using Brother PPD

Status in “cups” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since my upgrade to 13.10 printing from some applications (most
  notably firefox) results in the printer crashing (after some seconds
  receiving data the printer lcd display show all dots black, and
  afterwards the scanning unit makes some (calibration?) noise).

  The printer is network connected and is using brscript3 PPD
  (attached). When  i print to a PDF file and afterwards with okular to
  the printer everything is o.k..

  Downgrading to cups-1.6 from raring fixed the issue (see below).
  Upgrading to saucy's 1.7 reproduces the problem.

  Commandline: apt-get dist-upgrade
  Install: ghostscript-cups:amd64 (9.07~dfsg2-0ubuntu3.1, automatic)
  Downgrade: printer-driver-pnm2ppa:amd64 (1.13+nondbs-0ubuntu3, 1.13+nondbs-0ubuntu2), libcups2:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), cups-daemon:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), printer-driver-pxljr:amd64 (1.4+repack0-1, 1.3+repack0-2build1), printer-driver-foo2zjs:amd64 (20130826dfsg0-0ubuntu2, 20130306dfsg0-1ubuntu1), libcupsmime1:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), cups-client:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), libcupsimage2:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), cups:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), cups-browsed:amd64 (1.0.40-0ubuntu1, 1.0.34-0ubuntu1.1), printer-driver-gutenprint:amd64 (5.2.9-1ubuntu2, 5.2.9-1ubuntu1), cups-bsd:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), libcupscgi1:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), cups-filters:amd64 (1.0.40-0ubuntu1, 1.0.34-0ubuntu1.1), printer-driver-splix:amd64 (2.0.0+svn315-0ubuntu1, 2.0.0+svn308-0ubuntu1), libcupsppdc1:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), cups-common:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), cups-ppdc:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1, 1.6.2-1ubuntu5), printer-driver-c2esp:amd64 (26-4, 26-1ubuntu1), libcupsfilters1:amd64 (1.0.40-0ubuntu1, 1.0.34-0ubuntu1.1), printer-driver-ptouch:amd64 (1.3-6, 1.3-4ubuntu1)
  Remove: cups-server-common:amd64 (1.7.0~rc1-0ubuntu5.1)

  After that downgrade everything works fine.
