This seems to be a minor release regression in 4.0.4 vs. previous 4.0 versions:
"The pre-installed LibreOffice 3.6(?) of Ubuntu 12.04 has a bug and the paper tray selection does not work. It chooses always the paper from tray 1.
Therefore I installed LibreOffice 4.0 from ppa libreoffice-4-0. And this version worked correctly concerning the paper tray selection until now - the current version 18.104.22.168 AGAIN BROKE this feature - again everything is printed from tray 1!"

@Björn: Shouldn't the version number of this bug be 22.214.171.124 release?
As I haven't ubuntu I can't confirm the bug itself.
So - the claim is that the change is in the 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 range ?
git log --numstat libreoffice-126.96.36.199..libreoffice-188.8.131.52
167 commits to bisect I guess - but I'd check that 4.0.3 actually does work ;-) Only one commit actually looks even remotely related to printing:

fdo#59259: Suppress the expensive parts when we are only writing to metafile.
So I'm suspicious of the claimed range personally.
don't forget to do a query on "paper" and "print" before starting ..
@Winfried: Whops indeed -- fixed.
@Michael: No, so far the claim is that it worked with _some_ 4.0.x version, so the range is 4.0.0 to 4.0.4. I asked to clarify on the downstream bug.
Note that given how much we use an external print stack on this, before its confirmed hard that going back to 4.0.0 fixes this, its entirely possible that some other package update broke this. Still -- if it would be us, its a minor release regression.
Changing 'regression' -> 'PossibleRegression' until we get independent confirmation.
Björn just a ping. Does this persist with 184.108.40.206?
