Have you also tried different Java versions? Different printer  
drivers? If either one works, then it would be an unfortunate case of  
incompatibility between the Java AWT version and the driver...  
There's little we can do about this from within FOP. We just render  
to Java2D and pray that the used JRE has no trouble sending it  
through to the printer correctly :-/ (We had a recent post concerning  
such an incompatibility: replacing the printer driver made the whole  
thing work all of a sudden.)

Might be worth a try...

What Manuel is referring to, IIC, is: render to PDF and pipe the  
resulting PDF through to AcroRead.exe via the command-line. (The same  
could be done with PostScript as intermediate format. If your  
printers understand PS, then you could bypass AcroRead.exe entirely  
and send the output to the printer directly.)
