Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 216431
Print settings should be remembered per-document

Description of problem:
Printer settings are simply remembered from the last print job, regardless of
which printer it was to. They should be remembered per-printer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This affects the duplexing option (for instance).
So, to reproduce add two duplex printers to the printers e.g. "duplexprinter" and
print something as "long edge" to "duplexprinter", revisit the dialog and look
at "anotherduplexprinter" it'll have been set to "long edge" also.
gtk+ does not remember the print settings, therefore this can't be gtks fault...
If there is enhancement request here to make it possible to save and restore
per-printer settings by hooking up to a printer-changed signal on the dialog,
then please file that upstream.
Isn't it possible to pre-fill the dialog with specific settings? E.g. setting
the selected printer, and enabling duplex?
