Thanks yonnie

I had thought it must have been a while ago, and had started regression 
testing at 0.9.33 or so.  That's about 18 months back. I'll bring my 
testing forward to 0.9.53 as the"good" version - that's 5 months back, 
and see if I can do any better.
Interestingly, I had reached  0.9.37 and MYOB runs much the same, and 
still has the invoice printing problem.

I'll come back if I can find anything useful.

I'm actually tempted to shift the whole lot to gnucash, but don't have 
enough accounting knowledge to be confident I worked out all the tax
