Bug Description

The title says it all. The document is printed if the "auto-rotate and center" is unchecked but of course that's not a solution since the image is cropped.

I also tried printing to a pdf file, the resulting pdf seems correct but fails to print just the same.

Printing from okular works fine although for some reason dual sided printing is greyed out (it used to work fine with evince before on my Laserjet 2055d).

The problem seems known upstream (see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=739723)

I added a file exhibiting the problem.

Upstream fixed it with this commit

that reverts another fix so is not ideal, but maybe we should do that anyway
