----------------------------------------
bug is detected during CUPS call in cups gem (https://github.com/m0wfo/cups) v0.1.10. The complete core dump is attached as file 'dump.txt'.

the following works okay:
2.2.1 :001 > list = Cups.show_destinations
 => ["laserjet_1102w", "lp_null"] 
2.2.1 :002 > Cups.device_uri_for( list.first )
 => "hp:/net/HP_LaserJet_Professional_P_1102w?ip=192.168.0.65" 
2.2.1 :003 > Cups.device_uri_for( list.last )
 => "file:///dev/null" 

the following fails (the order is not important; the second call always fails with abort):
2.2.1 :001 > list = Cups.show_destinations
 => ["laserjet_1102w", "lp_null"] 
2.2.1 :002 > CupsDevice.testit( list.first )
 => "hp:/net/HP_LaserJet_Professional_P_1102w?ip=192.168.0.65" 
2.2.1 :003 > CupsDevice.testit( list.last )
