After your reply I thought I'd file a bug report. But when I fired up
reportbug there was this big warning by the galeon maintainers saying:
Please first check if it works with mozilla, check upstreams bug system,
etc and check if it is something in the user-configuration. While this I
hadn't done, so I started checking. In the end I found out this:

If ones sets fonts in the preferences >> fonts menu, this will
result in lines of the form:

	user_pref("font.name.serif.x-western", "Verdana");

In the ~/.galeon/mozilla/galeon/prefs.js file. If you remove these,
printing works again. This is of course still a bug ...
