This works for me on the development branch (17616:8cc19352fd74). This may have more to do with windowing systems (I use KDE) than with Octave. Test system was Mint, based on ubuntu 12.04, with 64-bit kernel. The critical OpenGL2ps library was libgl2ps0 1.3.6-1.

Generate a plot on screen, then switch to a different virtual desktop, launch print('test.png') command. No PNG graphics is generated

This I tested with the dev version and 3.6.4 on an Xubuntu 12.04
platform (XFCE) on different computers.
The Gnuplot backend does not show this problem.
The attached code TestPrint.m should help to repeat the problem.
