yes, i have run into something very similar this too with an HP4050 - 
from Word 97.  my experience was with a document that had a textbox in 
it with a border and several paragraphs of text inside the box.  the 
border printed fine on all 4 sides as did most of the text inside the 
box but one of the lines of text was just flat out chopped off in mid 
sentence - with the last character that was printed only being half 
there (the right side of the character and every word after it was 
simply not printed).  same document printed fine to another HP4050 on an 
identical samba box (samba and lprng config copied from one machine to 
the other with changes to computer and printer names as necessary).  wierd.

if you find out what causes this, i would definately be interested in 
hearing from you.
