Can't print a borderless photo under Fedora 17

Bug Description

Fedora 17 x86_64
Deskjet 6540 (yeah, old - but still working)

Overall, the printer works fine with Fedora 17. But with one use case it fails. I tried to print some border less photos on a 4x6 photo paper with Shotwell (Version 0.12.3). As the result, I expect a photo with no white border on any of the 4 sides. But with Fedora 17 (hplip 3.12.6) the printer left always a white stripe (about 2 millimeters) on one side.

If I do the same with Ubuntu 12.04 (hplip 3.12.2) the printed photo has no white stripes. I tried hplip 3.12.6 on Ubuntu and the printed photo is still perfect. So the version of hplip is not the difference :-(

Ubuntu uses cups 1.5.3 while Fedora still uses 1.5.2. So I installed cups 1.5.3 from the Fedora testing repository, deleted/added the printer, but there is still the white stripe :-(

So, my question is, how can I print a borderless 4x6 photo under Fedora 17.

Steps to reproduce:
* Open a photo with "Shotwell Photo Viewer"
* Crop the image to 4x6
* Print
** Page Setup > Paper Size: Photo Borderless 4x6 in
** Image Settings > Autosize: Fill the entire page
** Image Quality > Print Quality: Best

Thx, for your help.

Scan of the printed photos.
The upper one is printed on Fedora, the lower on on Ubuntu.
You can see the difference. On Ubuntu, the photo is printed border-less, on Fedora, there is a white stripe on the left side.
Surprisingly, the print quality of both photos are not the same. The photo printed with Fedora looks really better, than the Ubuntu one.
