I have had the same problem with YAP 2.5.2574 already. 
There also is an entry for both versions on the MiKTeX bugs data base headed 
'yap ignores the "To:" part of the page range to print' 
(indeed, if you don't stop it "manually", YAP prints on and on until the 
document's last page) from March and April, without answer. 
The problem has been on the MiKTeX mailing list as well, 
but I was unable to open archive files. 
Right now, I have other strange experiences with sourceforge.net ... 

Workaround: I use the "cancel" button in YAP's report box to stop it. 
An error report "unexpected condition" pops up -- don't mind, 
ignore it. You must "cancel" at least not before the printer ejects 
the first page.
