@Sebastien Bacher
Yes, it is. Steps are obvious - just open any ps file in evince and then try to print to file. When you switch to the "Page Setup" page, only the "only print" setting is active, the others aren't. Screenshot attached.

to what sort of printer do you try to print there?

No particular printer. Evince has a dedicated option "printf to file" even if no printer is installed (it doesn't require cups-pdf). I just click "Print to file" in "Print..." list and then there are only 2 tabs and the second one looks like in attached screenshot.

First tab attached.

not confirming the issue there, the gtk version in karmic is supposed to fix that issue and that works correctly there

So, what could possibly be wrong about my configuration? ;/
