Graham >>> The other day, I noticed that in the printer configuration 
app (System / Administration / Printing) there's a Job Options tab for 
each printer you have installed;  this has a 'Scale to fit' tick box.  I 
guess you should set the media size in the Printer Options tab (A4 in 
your case).

Does that help at all?
