[Reproducible] with parallel installation of Master "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID: 747ecb]"  {tinderbox: @16, pull time 2012-10-08 09:46:32} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with separate User Profile for Master Branch. Color for background area around check box and option box missing in printout (FreePDF), but shown in PDF export.
Reproduced with CALC / WRITER, others not tested.
Works fine for background color IN text box.

In WRITER background color is shown correctly in page preview , but not in print preview.
In CALC and DRAW background color is not shown in page preview, and not in print preview.
Impress not tested.

Already broken with LibO 3.3.3 and also AOOo 3.4.1 (only CALC tested), so problem seems inherited from OOo
