  cupsd crash "Closing on unknown HTTP state 0"

Status in “cups” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: cups

  I often get trouble with cupsd crashing and Apport saying the

  The problem cannot be reported:
  The program crashed on an assertion failure, but the message could not be retrieved. Apport does not support reporting these crashes.

  I think the crash is due to my having a saved Firefox session with
  Cups' administration window (http://localhost:631/admin) in it. The
  crash seems to occur when this session is restored as part of the
  session restore when I log in to my desktop environment.

  I have turned on debug-logging and can see the following:
  D [25/Jan/2010:08:57:16 +0100] cupsdReadClient: 11 GET /images/cups-icon.png HTTP/1.1
  D [25/Jan/2010:08:57:16 +0100] cupsdSetBusyState: Active clients

  D [25/Jan/2010:08:57:16 +0100] cupsdSetBusyState: Not busy
  D [25/Jan/2010:08:57:16 +0100] cupsdWriteClient: 1354538648 Closing on unknown HTTP state 0
  D [25/Jan/2010:08:57:16 +0100] cupsdCloseClient: 1354538648

  How to reproduce:
  0) Make sure you have session restore activated. Make sure your favorite browser is set to restore the last session on reload.
  1) Load http://localhost:631/admin in your favorite browser.
  2) Restart your computer.
  3) Log in to your desktop environment.

  Expected result: The CUPS administration window should be loaded in your browser.
  Actual result: The CUPS administration window fails to load. The browser says: "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."

  It is not consistently reproducible, but I would say I see a failure
  rate of 80 %. It happens on both of my test machines.
