This is tricky. What if the preview was launched without even showing
the dialog, or if the user hadn't picked the right printer yet when
clicking on preview.

Also, it will print differently by generating pdf and then converting
that to postscript, instead of generating postscript directly. Ideally
this should produce as-good output, but thats not really guaranteed.
