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.
