Joseph, I just did some testing here myself in Gutsy.  It seems that OO
is now patched so that it uses the the Ubuntu system default printer,
but sadly, as a consequence, will no longer honor the Open Office
default printer (so telling Open Office what printer yo want for a
default will no longer change anything permanently)

Open your System Menu on your gnome panel (default near the top left,
next to Applications menu) then Preferences, then Default printer.  Use
that dialog box to change your default printer system wide.
