Come to think of it.. Crutcher, is printing PDF files supposed to work?  
Should there be a print filter for it?  That would make this problem go away.

Basically, printing PDF files is broken.

Comment 3 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-11-26 17:14:38 UTC
There is no printfilter for printing PDF files, though there should be one.
