This issue is somewhere between 'normal' and 'enhancement'. Because intuitively the interface is very misleading, I have preferred 'normal'.
The PDF export dialogue box in Impress is partly carried over from Writer.
The dialogue should be 'slide' related, not 'page' related.
The following changes are needed:
On general tab, under 'range'
'Pages' should become 'Slides' (change of text only)
'Selection' should be suppressed - this option currently exports selected fields from a single slide. It is an option that makes sense in Writer, but the limited functionality in Impress is of little use (export of selection applies to a single slide and elements from slide Master cannot (I think) be selected for this purpose).
Alternatively, if the functionality kept, change the interface to make it clear what it does, because, intuitively, users might reasonably assume that 'selection' means the current selection of slides.
Documentation also to be corrected.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC4 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) English UI [OOO330m19 (build 6 / tag 184.108.40.206)]"
I believe current dialog will not cause real problems.
Same in DRAW dialogs
I remove unrelated "See also"

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

Identical in 3.5.0b3 so have reverted to NEW
reproducible with LO 220.127.116.11 (Win7 Home, 64bit)
Should be an Easy Hack?
The Print dialog has the right term "Slides" in version 4.0.2.
Only the PDF Export dialog still has "Pages".
Caolán: Indeed filter/uiconfig/ui/pdfgeneralpage.ui is generic ui for LO apps. Any idea how to include specific parts for each parts?
Caolan McNamara committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
Resolves: fdo#33983 use 'Slides' instead of 'Pages' for impress pdf export
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Lets use this bug for the "slides/pages" issue which is now fixed by the above commit and leave bug 33982 for the "selection" issue.
