Well, I found the what the problem was. xpdf uses whatever is in
/etc/papersize as default (a4 in my case) for printing, and 'man xpdfrc'
,-----[ *Man xpdfrc* (lines: 130 - 140) ]
| POSTSCRIPT CONTROL
| psPaperSize width(pts) height(pts)
| Sets the paper size for PostScript output. The width and height parameters give
| the paper size in PostScript points.
| psPaperSize letter | legal | A4 | A3 | match
| Sets the paper size for PostScript output to a standard size. The default paper
| size is set when xpdf and pdftops are built, typically to "letter" or "A4". This
| can also be set to "match", which will set the paper size to match the size speci-
| fied in the PDF file.
so putting the line:
in ~/.xpdfrc solved the problem.
