When printing a one page spreadsheet that is set under Format Page to be landscape it prints portrait. When selecting portrait as a print option it prints landscape.
Printing to a Epson B1100.
This is not restricted to spreadsheets. The same bug happens in WRITER for .doc documents (at least).
Strangely, the text appears portrait-mode on screen, and every .doc-reading application will display it as portrait (Apple Pages, Microsoft Word 2003), but if you look at the document properties it'll show 'landscape' (although switching it to 'portrait' will display the document incorrectly as landscape on screen in LibreOffice). All seems consistent as long as you don't want to get an output. I only printed as PDF but this generated a landscape-oriented page, with portrait-oriented lines, thus cropping text at the top & bottom. The only way to solve the problem was to switch it to portrait in Microsoft Office, which did not change the on-screen display but cured the printing (to PDF) problem.

The new Beta version appears to be working correctly now.

In 3.5.0 release still works correctly?
Printing an A4 landscape document on a HP laser results in a portrait print
(with the respective losses). Using LibreOffice 3.4.5 OOO340m1 (Build:502).
I would add that the printer preview window shows the preview correctly
in landscape. "Just" on paper it comes out in portrait.
