No, it's 1.2.1, just forgot to type the .1 :-)

That is the strange thing: What is printed is the preview, not the pdf, 
i. e. when I print the page with the pdf on it, the pdf will appear with 
only 72 ppi. But I'll try to export the thing to pdf again, I'm not 
sure, but I think I didn't try that yet. Just a minute...

Yepp, that's fine! At least a workaround...

Thanks for your hints!
