Thanks to a new forum user who provided a handy sample stack, I was able 
to pin down a recipe for making a very common form of printing on 
Windows completely unusable:

Setting the vGrid or hGrid properties of a field cause the field to be 
rendered into the print buffer with the entire content region blacked out:

Interestingly, printing to PDF works fine.  But using Microsoft 
OneNote's "Print to file" option shows the anomaly as physical printers do.

So if you're among those mystified by weird printing output, this may be 
the issue.

Hopefully this will be addressed quickly.  In its current state it kills 
LC as an option for a wide range of business and consumer applications.
