Subject: [Gimp-user] Margins for printing

For someone whose typical use is to tweak and crop an image and then,
often, print it, that seems a rather fundamental bug....

Well, the GIMP workaround is simple enough: once you've decided on a print resolution, pad your image canvas 
out by the desired margins.  It's not precise but it works.

I don't understand how this occurs either (there seems to be a 10:1 ratio between the specified print margin 
and actual result), but I don't think the GIMP devteam in general really does either given their dearth of 
Windows developers.  And while I'm generally willing to dive into some source files and see if I can spot 
something relevant, not knowing what I should even be looking for is a huge problem.
