KDE print system cuts top and right side of page (Print System - LPD)

when I print smth. through KDE print system (from KWord, Konqueror, or just test page from printmgr) top and right margin of the page are cut for aprox. 20 mm (~0.8 inch).
in printmgr I set:

Print system - LPD;
on Instances tab - Settings:
Page size - A4
Orientation - Portrait
Color mode - Grayscale
Margins - unchecked (Top 24px, Bottom - 24px, Left -36px, Right - 36px)
Filters - no.

Printer HP LaserJet 1010 USB (uses ifhp filter)

Printer Test Page (from printmgr)
Imageable Area
Page Size: 8.17x10.67in
Lower-Left: 0.17x0.17in
Upper-Right: 8.33x10.83in
Resolution: 300x300dpi

May be it's something connected with Letter and A4 page size confusion.
But I've already set paper format as A4 in Country/Region & Language settings in KDE Control Center.

P.S. If I turn on preview, or print to ps file I get cutted page in ps preview programm - so it's something wrong when KDE generate postscript file.

P.P.S. Programms that don't use KDE print system and use lpr directrly print pages fine.
Mozilla - print ok
gv - print ok
Acrobat reader - print ok
OpenOffice - print ok
