Landscape printing problem

System info:

------------------- ZOO  -------------------------------
tom@zoo:~$ okular --version
Qt: 4.6.3
KDE Development Platform: 4.4.5 (KDE 4.4.5)
Okular: 0.10.5


cups: 1.4.4-7

------------------- MOMS -------------------------------
tom@moms:~$ okular --version
Qt: 4.6.3
KDE Development Platform: 4.4.5 (KDE 4.4.5)
Okular: 0.10.5

cups:Version: 1.4.4-7

--------------------------------------------------------


I have one PDF that prints incorrectly:

zoo -> moms:  prints as landscape
printing the same file directly from moms does it correctly.

The problem seems to be a difference between local and remote
printing, for which i already found a bug in the MFC240C brother
driver.  CUPS behaves differently: print job provided on stdin of the
driver, or as a file.

SOLUTION: Using LPD fixes it.

Over-generalizing conclusion: don't trust vendor-supplied CUPS drivers
for remote printing!
