Confirmed. Note that this is not only visible when printing, the onscreen figure is also cropped.
This is due to the addition of a colorbar, which makes the subplots stop adapting their size depending on the labels. The workaround is to add the colorbars last:

Changing release to "dev", since this bug is also present in the current development version, and OS to any since I can reproduce on linux.

I'm plotting data quality in a calendar with y-axis = time, colorbar = data quality of measurements [0 1] and y-axis label = name of the measurement. When I save the resulting figure directly as a .png file in the code, the y-axis label is cut-off (see generated file "example.png").
