thanks for the report, I'm able to reproduce the problem here. Seems 
that printing with gimp via the gtk+ printer API is broken currently. 
Dunno why, but it might be a problem with new ghostscript 9.x.

I've modified the gutenprint port to allow building of the gimp printer 
plugin, with that printing works fine for me. Hope for you as well.
