This bug seems to be fixed in Ubuntu 13.04 with Evince 3.6.1-1ubuntu3.

Still affects me in Ubuntu 13.10 with Evinence 3.10 and with a Brother HL-5350 DN.

As far as I can see there may be a problem in LibreOffice v 4.1 generating a PDF Page and printing with evinence.
I've other pdf's which are working great, generated with libreOffice v.4.1.3.2.

I'm sorry that I cannot attach the pdf because there are to much sensitive informations to attach it here.

This is still an error for me with some documents on 13.10 64bit using multiple HP printers. An offending file can be found here:
