I noticed a strange thing in Windows version of Libre Office. When I print
to printer that is configured with driver "MS Publisher Imagesetter",
sometimes print files are really huge. For testing purpose I used "Print to
file" option.
For example I attached a 13 kilobyte odt file that turns into 48 megabytes
print file. It contains several lines of letters and numbers, and then
broken link to image (copied from web browser).

You can't attach files here. You either need to post them on a site
somewhere, or use Nabble to attach.

As a test I installed "MS Publisher Imagesetter", on a WinXP virtual
machine (on a linux host). I then printed a 13K two page .odt file from
LO Version (Build ID: 58f22d5); the first page is all text, the
second page is an EPS graphic. Printed to "MS Publisher Imagesetter" and
the result is a 107K postscript file that I opened in Ghostscript to
ensure it worked properly.

The PS heading on the print file:

%%Title: eps-example

If I print this document to another printer (with different driver, for
example, HP LaserJet 2050) the size of print jobs is quite reasonable (less
than 1 megabyte).

I suspect that you have an issue with the MSPI driver. You might want to
install a second one and see if it acts the same.

Is it normal behavior? Have anyone else noticed that?
We met with it when we were trying to understand why printing from Libre
Office takes so much time in RDP terminal session. :) (We had files that
produced even 250 Mb of print data, of course it took much time to send it
to terminal client's printer).

If you'd like to send me your file directly, I'll see if I can recreate
the problem.

Thanks in advance.
