That sounds like something I saw early in my porting efforts, portrait 
printing OK, choose landscape and things got messed up, but only if sending 
to a real printer via CUPS, printing to PDF file was 100% fine.  This I saw 
under pure Qt3 vs Qt4 apps using Qt Assistant, as well as KDE3 vs KDE4.

No-one else seemed to be having the issue at the time so I wrote it off as 
some local weirdness on my machine laying between Qt, Cups, and the HP 
drivers.  I didn't get time to go back and dig some more, and I don't have a 
printer at the moment to check again.  

Do you by any chance have an HP printer?

Can you try a few experiments, fire up Qt Assistant for Qt3 and Qt4 (assuming 
you have them installed) and try printing the page in Landscape and see what 
happens.  If that's fine, then the bug lurks somewhere in KDE.
