The same thing happens on screen when you scroll through a page inside 
TeXShop's built-in previewer (which actually calls an OS X routine to 
display PDF code). On screen the problem is suppressed by refreshing the 
view (for example, go back one page and then back to your original page).

This seems to indicate your printer is not PostScript, and uses instead 
some bitmap rendering of the original PDF code.

I think none of this should happen using Acrobat Reader. Or maybe Apple 
will correct the bug in OS 10.2?
