Description Jan Martinek 2004-11-15 09:11:24 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
a2ps uses too big font. For example if --chars-per-line is equal to
the longest line.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute
echo "Hello world." | a2ps --chars-per-line=12 -o hello_world.ps
2. Look at the resulting postscript
gv hello_world.ps

Actual Results:  The font is too big and the characters "d." (from
Hello world) are out of boundaries.

Expected Results:  The string "Hello world." that I used for testing
has 12 characters. I expect that a2ps --chars-per-line=12 creates a
postscript with "Hello world." aligned to the left and right margin of
the page.

Strong similarities to bug #137336.  I see this symptom here too.
