Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: thunderbird

Often after upgrading or installing ubuntu  (now running 10.04.1) I
notice (after a while, since I don't print that often from
browser/e-mail client) that the papersize is set to US Letter again. I'm
not quite sure why this happen, because I live in the Netherlands,
there's no US Letter here, ever (unless you get some special paper sent
in ;-)

Obviously in a longer running system, this is set in my system to A4
paper (systemsettings/locale/other/paper format). however, I found that
in /etc/papersize it said "letter". So I guess there are more places to
configure this. (I promptly changed that using "sudo paperconfig -p a4",
so perhaps this problem is over now...

Perhaps this bug needs to be moved to systemconfiguration/locale with a
summary: "systemsettings papersize configuration doesn't cover all
places where papersize is configured" or something...



PS, why is there no option to report a bug from http://bugs.launchpad.net, I had to go through the ubuntu-bug tool to get here...
