see on any other printing application (such as Scribus or Gimp)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

This is quite an old bug which goes from time to time with different releases.
I'm using an HP980cxi printer.

The file the printjob was created from. Note that problem of text positioning on a graphic from OOo Draw is out as well
I can see it with 1.9.84-1 as well
It's the single quotes that are causing the problem, as a workaround
tools->autocorrect->custom quotes and unselect replace and retype the quotes
will use ascii quotes instead of typographic ones which don't have this problem
apparently with Luxi Sans. Trying to get some information upstream
It's a generic problem with 1.9.X at the moment apparently, I'm assured they
have a fix which will appear around 1.9.89/1.9.90.
