Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

Our invoices are set in 10.5 pt DejaVu Sans Mono in PDF. Since upgrading from jaunty to karmic, evince prints them with what appears to be font size 10, as if the non-integer part of the number was truncated. On screen rendering is correct, though.

Printing from the commandline using "lp" results in the correct font size, as does converting with "pdf2ps" and then printing the PS with evince.

A sample PDF is attached.
