  LibreOffice ignores printer settings

Status in libreoffice package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  LibreOffice won't print double-sided on my HP 8600 printer.  This used
  to work correctly with Ubuntu 14.04.  I reported problems with this
  last Fall, but the problem has gotten worse instead of better.  My
  original report no longer shows up in my bug list.  The problem is NOT
  with the printer.  The duplexer works correctly in local mode.

  Although I specify "long edge" double-sided, auto tray select, I get:

       Letter size (wrong tray, the default tray -- the document is formatted legal-size)
       Single sided (all pages)
      Second page is printed upside-down (as though I had specified tumble-head, that is, short-edge double sided)
      A blank fourth (and sometimes fourh and fifth) page is "printed" at the end of the document, even though the document is only three pages long.  The source file contains only three pages - no dummy extra page like OO used to do.

  On some print runs I have specified multiple copies, collated.  Some are specified to be printed in reverse order, but neither seems to make any difference (might account for the fifth page -- have to check).
  I have checked all the settings in the drop-down "file" tab and each of the printer specification popups.  They are set correctly.

  Until recently, PDFs were printed correctly, but now neither *.odt nor
  *.pdf files are printed correctly.

  I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, fully up-to-date.  The computer is an HP dv6 with AMD A8 64-bit processor.
