can't print checks on trunk?

Hey all,

I just tried to print a check (for the first time in about 4 1/2
months) and noticed that it wasn't working.  This is on a
Fedora 7 machine.  I know it USED to work (4 1/2 months ago).
If I try to print directly to the printer the dialog sticks
around for a while and it DOES send something, but it never prints.
If I print to a file and choose Postscript it generates what
appears to be empty postscript.  However if I print to PDF it
does create a valid PDF that I can then print (from acroread).

Unfortunately I don't know exactly when this might have changed.

The GnomePrint subsystem still prints reports out okay (I can print a
report), so it's only the GtkPrint subsystem that's having an issue.

Has anyone else noticed this?  (I'm currently building the 2.2
branch to test if it's working there, which would tell me if
it's just something in trunk or (maybe) a problem with my version
of gtk.  Maybe I'll pull in the Fedora updates.
