Unless I'm mistaken:
1. The patch only sets a printer as the default if CUPS doesn't define
2. Windows always has a default printer, unless none is installed — of
course, the user may change the default from Windows' first choice;
3. On Windows, if the default printer is deleted, another one is
automatically assigned as default (and thus #2 above is always true);
4. This fixes bugs #8475  and #8476 . (Those two applications
are kinda critical here in my company.)
