Do you print with lpr?

If so, then your lpoptions might be set to landscape and two pages per sheet. 
You can check this by typing lpoptions on the command line. These are the 
standard options, that will be applied whenever you print with lpr and don't 
specify other options.

The lpoptions are either set system wide (/etc/cups/lpoptions) or for your 
user only  (~/.lpoptions). Edit these files, if you want to change the 
standard behavior.
