Google Cloud Print sucks!

I have a Brother MFC-9130CW.  I can verify that it is communicating with Google’s servers via XMPP:

In Chrome I see nothing!  I can add it as a “Classic” printer, then in the Advanced Details I see:

So, the printer has registered with Google Cloud Print (minutes ago), but I don’t see it in my Cloud Print list of printers in Chrome.

WTF Google?!?  This is just like all the other Google products, full of bugs and when it doesn’t work they don’t give a shit.  There is no place to report bugs in Cloud Print.  Yeah, if I have a Chromebook I can post on the forums for that, and let me tell you, there are a lot of people complaining of the same thing.
