since you are someone who is familiar with code, please look it up in the sources if KDEPrint at some point does call the default PostScript viewer with a hardcoded "--geometry" setting (for details of the format, see "man X"). I noticed in the past that KDEPrint kghostview previews always started with a wide window (not as wide as yours, and you couldn't make it smaller...). I didn't like kghostview for a lot of more reasons, and I hardly use it. (I often use kpdf as a preview program, see also http://www.kdedevelopers.org/node/2635 ).

Looking at your shot, the width of the window may be enforced by the length of text strings on your toolbar, and the fact that they are placed *besides* the icons instead of underneath. If I were you, I'd see if I could find the setting that allows to place the text underneath the icons, not besides them.

Next, you may be able to configure which icons are at all shown in the toolbar, and get rid of some you do not need that often...

Lastly, you may be able to override the window size how the viewer starts up by adding the commandline option ("--geometry 333x333+0+0") to the kcontrol settings of the mime type handling.

Regarding the icons you mention in $summary -- these may be missing because you're using an icon theme with an incomplete set of icons. Or because your print preview application isn't a KDE application?

In any case, I do not see how this could be a KDEPrint bug, except that KDEPrint would call kghostview with some hard-coded settings...
