Bug Description

Not sure this is the right package, but I need to start somewhere.

Steps to reproduce:

Display it with eog, notice that it looks just fine. Click "Print preview" for either a real printer or the PDF printer. Notice that the image is now broken.
Something similar happens when trying to print from inkscape (Vector rendering is broken, Bitmap rendering is okay), so I suspect this is somewhere in the printing backend.

If you only display the file in the print preview of the print dialog, it is not yet sent to CUPS. So the problem cannot be caused by CUPS. Moving to GTK ...
