Libre Office destroys envelopes

I am coming from the community. Would one of our intrepid heroes please fix this for me?
Scientific Linux 6.4, 64 bit
Libre Office 5.0.4, 64 bit
Libre Office "NOT OUR BUG" reference:
LO seems to think this is a CUPS PDF bug.
I put a number 10 envelope in the manual feeder of my Okidata 4350 printer. I tell LO my envelope is center landscape, second picture from the right (see attachment). I tell the LO to print. It prints cross ways (portrait) on my envelope, ruining my envelope.
Can you guys please unravel who did what to whom so I can finally print an envelope?
> Libre Office 5.0.4, 64 bit
Typo: should have been 4.0.4
See bug #768811 comment 17.
It isn't entirely clear what the best way forward is for this unfortunately.
How about a newer version of CUPS that has the issue corrected?

> How about a newer version of CUPS ?
that's called "rebase" and we generally don't rebase in RHEL, we only back-port fixes to the current version.
If you mean cups-1.6 that Tim mentioned in bug #768811 comment 17, then it's actually not cups-1.6 that hopefully fixes it but the other package he mentions there: cups-filters. Moving from cups-1.5 to cups-1.6 & cups-filters in Fedora-19 (as described in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/CUPS1.6) was a big change and we most likely don't want such a change in RHEL-6.
