I've set the margin in custom mode to 0. The first time I've printed
after the change I had the same problem, after that it worked. Then I
switched back to default values, which look sane to me. At least what is
displayed on the margin page. After closing konqueror and starting it
newly the behaviour is strange. Firt time I try to print to the printer
(It's a canon bjc 6000)  (only in preview mode) I again get the zero
sized page, after the next try in the same instance it works, the
following try again fails, than it works again, .... could there be some
kind of unitialized variable or stray pointer ?

Kind regards
