Using the Foomatic/hl1250 driver cures the problem.  
"Print with Gutenprint" in Gimp has the same problem.
It looks like a bug in the Gutenprint driver, at least for this printer.
Do you think I should file it on the Cups Bugzilla.

I'm not sure exactly why I used the Gutenprint driver.  As best I
remember it, when I upgraded to Fedora-16, which was done with a full
install on Nov. 9th, either Gutenprint was the default driver for the
printer, or was recommended, or no driver was recommended.
