On a MacPro with 10.7.3 and the same TeXLive2011 distribution the printed document looks different. The typesetting is identical, but the spacing of the document is off: the text starts further down the page and more to the left and the interline spacing is different, so the text runs off the page.

Do the pdf files appear the same in Preview? If so the problem is with the print driver or some setting in Printer Setup.

Good Luck,
