Dear cups gurus,

I know that it's not a strictly cups related problem, but hopefully
someone is able to give a hint. Thanks a lot in advance!

I am using cups 1.1.23 on a SuSE Linux 10.1 server.

I have some PDF files in format DIN A3 landscape. I want to print them
on A3 paper landscape. But if I choose A3 as paper format (using kpdf or
kprinter) the resulting spool file contains postscript code that prints
the document on A3 paper but portrait. If I choose A4, everything is
correct. Any idea whats wrong?

You can download an example pdf (Grafik1.pdf) on
http://www.uni-koblenz.de/~litauer/A3/ as well as the ppd file of the
printer I am trying to print to.
