Hi Tim

I have the same problem. I don't know what causes it and its
quite erratic - sometimes it does it and sometimes it doesn't.
I think it mostly happens when I am in a hurry to print something
out :-)

As the problem is happening in TeXShop and Preview it must be the
Apple PDF stuffing up.

I have found it prints OK if you use Acrobat Reader
