Modified (SVN rev. 1167) the listing of printers, including share name and location.
Is there any reason we have to store printers in the "others" table and not in a separate one, like we are doing for other I/O peripherals?

Fixed updating of share names of existing local printers (SVN rev. 1169).
I noticed that list_viewdef_all_printers.php lists ALL 'printer' devices from the other table, without taking into account the timestamp, so the list shows even old printers, even if uninstalled and not audited anymore on the linked pc. Very odd...
Definitely local printers need a separate table, linked to the system one. I could understand storing them in the other table only for networked printer devices, when detected by the nmap script.

The original reason Printers were in the 'others' table is/was because they are (can be) networked.
This table was supposed to be any networked item that is not a 'system'.
It made it easy to write the "other network items" query...

OAv2 does away with this. ALL devices are in the 'system' table. That's devices, not components.
