gedit's default paper size seems to be A4. I've seen this in RHEL
4b1, RHEL 3, and FC3t3. If I'm in a US locale that should default to
I've heard reports of this happening with RHEL 3 but I'm having
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
As long as its not already been configured by the user, gedit will
choose A4 paper.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a clean account or remove your gconf registry
2. run gedit
3. look in File->Print->Paper observe the paper size set to A4
I see a closed bug that looks similar to this filed against RHL 8.0.

changes Gnome generic postscript printer file to use "USLetter" as page size
One way to fix this bug with gedit would be to add this patch to the
