Today I stumbled over hundreds of symbolic links in my OS X /tmp folder.

> …
lrwxr-xr-x    1 root      wheel    66B 10 Mai 11:42 554f27eaca409 -> /private/etc/cups/ppd/Photosmart_C309a_series_blu___iMac_Buero.ppd
lrwxr-xr-x    1 root      wheel    66B 10 Mai 11:42 554f27ed23fcd -> /private/etc/cups/ppd/Photosmart_C309a_series_blu___iMac_Buero.ppd

…

I can delete them, but after minutes the folder is stuffed with those links.
Only when I remove all printers, the symlinks will not be created. Is it normal? How can I prevent it?
