Well, if it makes you feel any better, it does the same thing here
(truncates top and bottom).

Looks like CUPS is addressing the page as if there were no unprintable
areas on the page (i.e., it's scaled to fit an 8-1/2 x 11 piece of paper
exactly) rather than squeezing it into the printable area.  I'm afraid I
don't know enough about CUPS to say any more.
