Since you run Linux, can you try creating a PDF file for your document and then use the "default viewer" package for PDF to open it. Then go to your printer's options and try to print 2 or 3 copies of the document with the collate option.
Now that got interesting! I tried this using Adobe Acrobat Reader to print the PDF file and although I selected 2 copies, collated, I got one copy! I then tried 3 copies and still only got one copy.
What printer are your using? Which driver set? Original-manufacture-style, CUPS-style or GhostScript-style? Manually installed or did the Linux version find the printer driver and installed it automatically?
I am using an HP Laserjet 8150DN, CUPS 1.3.11, on "AppSocket/HP JetDirect" and the "HP Laserjet 8150 Series Postscript (en)" driver. When I installed it, CUPS found the printer on my network automagically with the "Find New Printers" option, but I continued to install it manually using the CUPS "wizard". I did not opt for the Foomatic or Gutenprint drivers, thinking they would not be needed, since the printer has Postscript emulation, and a simple Postscript driver should suffice. Now I may go back and rethink that decision. I noticed there are two other drivers I may try: Foomatic and CUPS Gutenprint v5.2.2.

Try the Export to PDF for one copy of the document and then try and print the duplex and collated document that way. If it works, then it is a LO printer option issue. If it does not work properly, then it is a printer/driver issue. My Epson has a problem with LO and my HP has a driver issue, the last time I tried it - which was a few months back when I was still running Ubuntu 10.04.
Thanks for the help. You may be onto something with the driver. I will try the other drivers and report back.
