What does 'incorrectly' mean? Should you file a bug report you should
try and detail as much as possible about this.
Does it 'print' correctly if you print to file instead of hardware
printer? It does here.
You sohuld try and pin down what printer driver you are using. But also
consider that I *think* when evince prints it's relying on external
tools such as postscript etc.
I am able to correctly view and print the document using Microsoft
Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600 and Adobe Reader 7.0.8.
My guess is that there is a bug in the Debian printer driver (?).
How do I file a bug report?

If you are running this for the first time it will present a kind of
'wizard' to configure it. You can leave most options at the default if
