Daniel, Gilles,

is this still an issue with KDE-3.5.5? If so, can you upload an example PDF (not too large) where this problem still occurs?

If you want yourself to help shootdown the problem, do this:

 (a) Use kghostview and kpdf and "Print to file (PostScript)". Save the file.
 (b) Create a copy of your /etc/cups/ppd/yourprintername.ppd file.
 (c) Insert the line
        *cupsFilter: "application/vnd.cups-postscript 0 pstops"
     below line starting with '*NickName:'
 (d) Add a line
        FileDevice True
     to your cupsd.conf and restart cupsd.
 (e) Install a new printer named "printtotestfile" like this:
        lpadmin -p printtottestfile \
                -v file:/tmp/collatedtestprint.ps \
                -E \
                -P /path/to/modified-copy-of-ppd.ppd

You will now get the result of CUPS' filter system (after it passed the "pstops" filter) in the /tmp/collatedtestprint.ps (ATTENTION, each job will overwrite the previous one, so save it to some other name before the next test). Now test printing with various settings from various applications, look that the "diff" and tell us the results....
