This happens on two different printers so I don't think it's a printer

It's a bug in an underlying library. A workaround has already been
implemented in Dia, so you should see it fixed when 0.97.3 gets released.

In the meanwhile, you can get around this bug by exporting to some
format using a non-Cairo filter (like pixbuf-png) and printing the
resulting image or document.

You can also compile the upcoming 0.97.3 yourself.

OK, thanks for that, do you know if the 0.97.3 code will compile
fairly painlessly on [x]ubuntu 13.10?  I'm happy to pull in some
dependencies but I don't want dozens of them.

How/where can I get a reasonably stable 0.97.3 beta (or pre-beta)? If
I do:-
    git clone git://

will I get something OK[ish]?
