gedit uses default monospace font for printing instead of Luxi mono font

Description of problem:
After setting the editor font to "Luxi Mono 10", documents are still
printed using the default monospace font instead of the former.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open text file.
2. Set editor font to "Luxi Mono 10".
3. Print document.
Printed document is printed using the default monospace font.
Printed document is printed using the "Luxi Mono 10" font.
Even the system fixed width font as reported by gedit itself is "Luxi
Mono 10" but still either way [checkmarking "Use the ..." or selecting
"Luxi Mono 10" from the font selector] not "Luxi Mono 10" but the default
monospace font is used when printing the document.
It turns out that the printing font [can/has to] be set independently via
"gconf-editor" [which is not necessarily known to the average user and not
even installed by default], and is used thereafter according to the its
value. Closing as NOTABUG - I might submit a "request for enhancement"
