getting "access denied" when adding printers to Windows 2008 SBS

Mark this up as the dumbest thing I've seen in a while.

If you log in as an admin on a Windows 2008 SBS box and add a printer, you get an access denied. It looks like this:

Instead of clicking "add printer" - which is available to you - you HAVE TO right click in the open space in the printer window and choose run as administrator -> add printer. What a joke. So stupid.
