This was after I'd set the paper size in Mozilla, etc. It also happened
when printing out a dvips'ed LaTeX document with the [a4paper] option
for documentclass. I had the setq ps-paper-type line set correctly in
.emacs too, which is what made me think it was a CUPS/configuration
problem rather than application-specific. Perhaps it was just me -- no
one else seems to have had any troubles.
