     * Prints the HTML document.
     * @param quick if true, fully automated printing, without print dialog
    void print( bool quick = false );

Thanks for reporting this hidden issue.

This could be fixed with the patch from attachment 122884.

which is required as fallback to avoid this issue, if the mentioned patch is
not applied to kdelibs4.
