           Summary: xedit prints wrong number of pages
           Product: xorg
           Version: 6.8.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: App/other
        AssignedTo: xorg-bugzilla-noise at freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: felix.schulte at gmail.com

The new Print feature in xedit prints the wrong number of pages.

Do a
# man ls | head >foo.txt
# xedit
Print the page
The printer prints 5 pages instead of one, all with the same content.

Looking at the code it seems that xedit gets confused due the geometry resource
in Xedit.ad - the value is always "*geometry: 590x440" - even for the print shell.

A quick fix is to superset the resource like this:
--- xc/programs/xmore/print.c
+++ xc/programs/xmore/print.c
@@ -289,40 +289,41 @@
     n = 0;
     XtSetArg(args[n], XawNlayoutMode, XawPrintLAYOUTMODE_DRAWABLEAREA); n++;
+    XtSetArg(args[n], XtNgeometry,    "+0+0");                          n++;
     apd->printshell = CreatePrintShell(toplevel, apd->pscreen, "printshell",
args, n);
