The output from the command lpoptions is:
[root athene ~]# lpoptions
job-sheets=none,none printer-info='HP Laserjet 1200'
printer-is-accepting-jobs=1  printer-is-shared=1
printer-make-and-model='HP LaserJet 1200 Foomatic/pxlmono (
recommended)' printer-state=3 printer-state-change-time=1147969389
printer-state -reasons=none printer-type=143364 scp-fc5=true

So, no number-up. Makes sense, because regular printing is ok (all
non-browsing applications). However, I may have found the cause.

After issuing the above command I started Konquerer, it also printed
4-up, so I had a look at the properties and this time I could see the
parameter: 4 pages per physical page (a KDE dialog).

Switching this backup to 1 page, corrected the situation for Konquerer
*and* Thunderbird.

Remarkable is that a KDE dialog influences Thunderbird running from gnome.

Why? Thunderbird is the same application in both desktops.
