[lug] cups browseorder problem

I have a whole bunch of client machines that are using the cups browse
mechanism to load their printers.  Unfortunately it picks up all the
printers on the local subnet, not just the ones from the print server.

I have tried locking it down via this syntax:

Browsing On
BrowseProtocols cups
BrowseOrder deny,allow
BrowseAllow from <ip_of_print_server>

But it keeps picking up a print queue from an adjacent client.  The
docs seem to indicate that it BrowserOrder deny,allow means that the
cups client won't listen to other machines browse broadcasts unless
they are explicitly allowed.

The full cupsd.conf is the above preceded by:

LogLevel debug2
MaxLogSize 0
Printcap /etc/printcap
<Location /admin>
AuthType Basic
AuthClass System
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From
<Location />
Order Deny,Allow
Deny From All
Allow From

Am I missing something or is this a bug?
