Can't change default paper size from A4

Description of problem:
Whenever I go to print a document in gedit, I have to switch to the paper tab
and explicitly select "US Letter". There doesn't appear to be a way to select
this as the default paper size. In the Red Hat Printer Config I have my only
printer set up for "Letter", not "A4"; and there's no other obvious place to
select a default page size.
This may not be linked only to gedit, but it's hard to find other gnome2 apps
that are printing-enabled to check this.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gedit
2. Select "Print..."
3. Click on the "Paper" tab, and note that the page size is A4.
Actual Results: N/A
Expected Results: N/A
Should also be reported to bugzilla.gnome.org and comment added to this bug
with a link to the gnome.org bug (and vice versa)
Okay, I've reported it to bugzilla.gnome.org (including a link to this bug
report). Here's a link to that report:
Thanks a lot (I'm not sure how this is intended to work or where the paper
setting gets saved).
Reported upstream, closing here.
