Bug Description

Binary package hint: gedit

When Autocheck Spelling in the tools menu is selected and the document is printed, the red squiggly line under the misspelled words is also printed.

1. This happens in Ubuntu 8.10 and 9.04

2. gedit version 2.24.2

3. I expected the squiggly underlines to not be on the printed page

4. There are red squiggly lines on the printed page, I have to disable the autocheck spelling to make them go away

also it shows when you print to file (pdf) so if you want to test it you can save paper

ok, heres how to reproduce it:

1. open gedit and type some jibberish
2. go to tools > Autocheck Spelling and select it, the jibberish should be underlined
3. go to file > print and choose a printer, "to a file" is fine
4. the word is still underlined on the printed document

I've attached a screenshot that shows the document, with Autocheck Spelling on, and the printed pdf below it.
