5)print the new buffer (with or without saving it to a file - the same problem

I was not able to reproduce this bug on Fedora 7 with gedit.i386 1:2.18.2-1.fc7,
so I guess it is fixed there. Please reopen in case you still experience the bug
with Fedora 7 or 8, older releases are not supported anymore.
I used copy and paste with the middle mouse button and printed to a pdf file.
