Description Jack Neely 2004-10-27 10:50:44 EDT
Description of problem:
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
trouble duplicating.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
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

Additional info:
I see a closed bug that looks similar to this filed against RHL 8.0. 
#76034.  Buts its not quite.

One way to fix this bug with gedit would be to add this patch to the
libgnomeprint22 package. I'm not sure if you would want to do that however for
any non US users. (I got the impression that most people outside the US who
decide such things wanted this to be set to A4)
