See bug 18081 and bug 22437.

Basicly the print filtering code is attempting to convert your document into a
format that can be printed.  To do this is uses the 'file' command to guess what
type of file it is.  Unfortunetly the file command's database includes an entry
for 'fsav (linux) virus' which was not very well written, matching on perfectly
normal files.  

This is apparently resolved in Rawhide (RedHat's pre-beta 'distribuion' -
basicly their current working copy - found at ftp://ftp.redhat.com/rawhide).
