        Thank you!
        You just may have hit upon something.
I have an older (continually updated Ubuntu on another HDD, its copy of the same file is slightly larger --- the one with non-printing bits is a 367.5kb file & the older one is 371.1kb ---- the difference is only 3.6 kb - but that could just be where the 'wrinkle' is hidden... Now, well - more likely in the morning after I've slept some, "ill have to smitch to the other Ubuntu install & try printing from that file. Really hope that is the cure.

An idea based on my experience with this type of long-lived document. Look for a corruption in the file format. Look for an older version of it (from your archive / backup systems) that might print correctly.

True, this idea comes from experience with M$ products. But the formats are not so much different. A long document that receives hundreds of small changes over a period of 1 or 2 years is likely to acquire a format corruption. One such sign is a difference between the file size as reported by LibreOffice and the file size as reported by disk file manager in OS.
