Does it also happen when you print from your application
into a PostScript file and then print this file via "lp"?

As far as I remember the KDE printing environment may do some kind
of prefiltering of the input before it is sent to CUPS.

You may stop printing for the queue and then inspect the data
file /var/spool/cups/d... whether it may be different when
printing via kprinter and when printing via "lp".
