CUPS and HP LaserJet 4V printer: variable width font becomes fixed width

Since I have upgraded to FreeBSD 4.8 (with cups-1.1.18), printing has a problem
with variable width fonts. Variable width fonts are printed out as fixed width
fonts; so text looks ugly and runs over the lines.

I use "http://localhost:631/admin" to configure CUPS.

The LaserJet 4V printer is attached to a Windows 98 PC,
and my FreeBSD PC prints via samba:
   Device URI: smb://surfion2/hp4v

I have tried as "Model/Driver":
   HP LaserJet 4V, 4Si, CUPS+Gimp-Print v4.2.5
   HP LaserJet 4 series, CUPS+Gimp-Print v4.2.5
   HP LaserJet 6 series, CUPS+Gimp-Print v4.2.5  	

All to no avail.

Has anyone experience with this?
