Hi Riccardo, I just fixed a read from an uninitialized variable in NSPrintOperation (see my last commit) which was messing up TextEdit printing. Wonder if this fixes the bug you see on NetBSD.

not sure about the unnecessary white margin, it will need more investigation.
cheers and happy new year,

The situation on Cairo generally improved.
- on both cairo and art backends, the page has an unnecessary white margin on top (verified with Ink and Graphos).

ON a certain computer (NetBSD) print information is returned bogus: it has left/right margins but zero width/height. his impacts certain apps (Graphos) and creates blank preview pages (Ink, Graphos)

When printing pages come either out blank or they have the wrong clipping rect and a great part of the content remains white.
This happens with both Ink and Graphos.
