There have been signifiant changes to the printing system in the past
nine years, sufficient to make any debugging of this issue very, very
difficult and time-intensive. Files from Evince and Okular probably took
different routes through the filtering system of the time.  They
certainly take different routes today (Evince sends a PDF, Okular sends
PostScript). Not having the original PPD makes it impossible to
undertake any serious investigation.

I would recommend this report be closed.
