This bug and the one I filed 827196 are probably related to bnc#752454 as
indicated by Johannes Meixner. Since you can change printers with the KDE print
module, ie use a ppd file, then there is a vulnerability of some sort.

Here is how I see things:

Just remove the ability to add printers via kde module or whatever printer
settings gui you prefer and let users manipulate everything else without
password of any kind.

So you would have (2) seperate settings:

1) add a printer (root password)
2) configure printers --- anybody or any group type security.
