You have system-config-printer package installed. Which believes it has
complete control over Cups configuration. Each time cups package is
updated, it will use system-config-printer to regenerate configuration
file, overwriting your changes. Some other processes may trigger it
too. If you are manually setting Cups configuration, simply deinstall
system-config-printer and all should be fine. If you are using GUI,
don't touch the files with vi editor.
