I must be missing something?

If so, I have been missing the same thing for years.  Maybe somebody on
the developer team can cast some light on this.

Meanwhile, I import images made in the GIMP into a Scribus document,
using guide lines on the Scribus canvas to set margins, and export the
page(s) as PDF.  This method does work, enables one to print with any
printer via any operating system, and provides advantages in terms of
the ability to lay out pages with multiple images, text, etc.


This actually has been a known bug for almost 10 years running; currently the only (in-GIMP) workaround is to 
pad your image canvas size out by the desired margin.

Bugzilla report: (since 2008)

(The centering option technically does work fine, since all it does is 
calculate the corresponding print margins; it's the print margins 
themselves that are the problem.)
