can you login to the cups admin interface at http://localhost:631 and
check the settings there? What are you using to print? I have noticed
that staroffice at least defaults to A4. Perhaps openoffice does too.

I've used Cups on laserjet 4000s and my epson inkjet and have never had
a sizing problem(it has always used what it's told)

for my printer I get:
         Media Size: [Letter___________________]
