Firefox (still) not printing selection

The idea that the bug was in the pango patch came to me just yesterday
by a single elimination (not related to the rudiments of programming
that I know). No other distribution presents the bug, only the Red Hat
like, so the problem is in our RPM and not in the source code provided
by Mozilla. The elimination of pango was an blind attempt, as it was the
only patch related to printing, but after that the bug disappeared. 
This bug came from Firefox and reaches Fedora 9 beta without
being corrected and it seems clear in the course of conversation in
Bugzilla that if the bug isn't corrected yet we're getting the risk of
not being corrected in time to the final release. 
What about the bug? Even if it is not pango's fault, the fact is that
the bug is there for years.

Sorry for my poor english :$
