I've been having the same problem since upgrading.  I'm having the  
problem both with the HP drivers (LaserJet 4250) as well as my Toshiba  
drivers.  What I've found that works (and I believe this to be a work- 
around, as opposed to a solution) is to make sure "collate" is checked  
in the print dialog.  If you have that checked, you should get your  
multiple copies, even for 1-page documents.  I'm not sure what changed  
in 8.10, as I never had this problem with previous versions of  
Ubuntu.  I haven't been able to confirm whether this is a CUPS  
problem, or a gnome-print problem.
