couple of printing issues

In my first attempt at printing, I am using this code. I haven't tried 
on Windows yet, but overall it works pretty good on OS X.

   set the printScale to 0.9
   set the printRotated to true
   set the printCardBorders to true
   answer printer
   open printing with dialog
      print this stack
   close printing

Are there any workarounds for this issues?

1)  printScale and printRotated seem to have no effect; they still have 
to be manually selected in the first print setup dialog.

2) When running as look and feel "Appearance Manager", none of the 
controls are printed (buttons, checkboxes, text fields, etc.)

3) When I cancel out of the print dialog, it pops up again, then if I 
hit Cancel again, then the handler exits. It seems maybe Rev is calling 
the print dialog twice?
