Are you really sure? Because:

.. that's what I suspected. ifconfig isn't that trustable as ip. ;(
And the behaviour seems to result from a bug either in the
TCP/IP-stack with the sit0-device (IPv6-in-IPv4) or at ifconfig
itself. So make sure ipv6 isn't present [sudo rmmod -f ipv6].

(We will take a closer look at the problem anyway and maybe just
deactivate the ipv6-module per default.)

Hm, interesting. Does "only" CUPS die or the whole grml-system? Have
you set a password for user root before activating CUPS? Did you
ever see the user+password dialog when selecting "Add printer"?
