Interesting. I was going to comment that the EM_FORMATRANGE problem may be the cause, but this may be due to the CUPS implementation or some other reason on the Mac. Unfortunately, my only printer, which was an inkjet, would have cost as much to repair as it would to buy a new one. I guess it may be time to buy another, but this time its going to be a laser, not ink.
