Description

Perhaps the more precise characterization is that "ls" shows a file that should exist, but accessing it by any other means gives the error "No such file or directory". The file in question is the backup conf file of cups, /usr/local/etc/cups/printers.conf.0

I am seeing it on hammer2 on three different machines.

Reproduce as follows:

1 - install cups (rc.conf: cupsd_enable=YES, sudo service cupsd start) and create a printer via the web interface at localhost:631 --> Administration --> Add printer
2 - delete and add the printer again: see if cups has created a backup copy of the config file which has the suffix .0,

/usr/local/etc/cups/printers.conf.0

If yes, then try "ls -l" and "ls -l /usr/local/etc/cups/printers.conf.0" and see that the second one should give an error "ls: /usr/local/etc/cups/printers.conf.0: No such file or directory".

Actually, I now see that any file with the suffix .0 that cups creates shows this weird feature. For instance, Administration --> Edit configuration file --> then save will create cupsd.conf.0, which gives error with "ls -l cupsd.conf.0" while "ls -l cupsd.conf" is fine.
