Thanks Greg,
That actually was the solution I came up with back when I first noticed 
it and another thread showed up here about it.  I think I followed a 
link from the previous thread to that wiki page.  I was just really 
surprised that it hasn't been fixed yet!  I just added "kprinter" as the 
alternate method, as I mentioned above, to get output from my printer.

I guess regular printing doesn't take a high priority, but maybe things 
will get sorted out now that 1.3.4 is finally out.
