Um, it's not like I said we'd never have bugs. These kinds of things ought
to be reported so they can be fixed. I'm not sure what else you'd expect.

What did libgnomeprint insist that you do in a specific way? Is there a lack
of functionality there that should be addressed? Sounds like this is more of
a bug/feature problem than anything to do with usability. Our printing stack
