Is there a way to disable background printing when exporting to pdf in InDesign CS5?
I really prefer the way pdf-export has been done in the foreground as it has been since InDesign 1.0.
An option where you could choose between forground and background printing would be nice since I'm pretty sure there are people out there who want background printing. Why else would Adobe all of a sudden make this, in my opinion, stupid change?

For the record, exporting PDF has nothing to do with printing from ID. In theory it was made a background task to improve your efficiency and productivity (at the request of users, by the way), since a foregorund export stops you from doing anything else while you wait, but the background export allows you to work on things at the same time.
Most of the time this actually works well. There was a bug that showed up under certain circumstances (squashed in the last patch), and some reports of export failure with other files as well that are not related to the bug. Though I was one of the first to report a hang during export, I've not seen one in at least six months, maybe longer, and none of the files that originally failed do so now. If the reason you want the foreground export is to see a progress bar, which I miss, you can open Window > Utilities > Background Tasks to see it.
If you'd like this to be a user preference in a future release, file a request at Adobe - Feature Request/Bug Report Form
