To summarize:

 (a) printing selection of pages works for all KDE applications on the

 (b) previewing the selected pages only in the kprinter preview does work
     for some applications, but not for others (though even those applications
     that show *all* pages in the preview do actually only print the pages 
     which were selected

KWord is an examples for page selection working in preview.
Kate/Kwrite is example for page selection not working in preview.

I'm currently not sure why we have this difference. I assume this is an affair of Kate/Kwrite developers to implement that they only *send* the pages that were selected to kprinter, and it may be right to assign this bug to the Kate developers. I'll do a few more tests with other applications to get a fuller picture about what the current state is.

Changing $summary + reopening bug, for now as "UNCONFIRMED" (so it's easier for me to find it when I revisit bugzilla...)

(old $summary: "I want to print a selection and the whole document was send to printer")
