I noticed that different envelopes and even different printer drivers behave differently.

In this regard I've added comments to the above mentioned bug report.

The skinny is this. It appears that some combinations of envelope and printer work and some don't. So if you can try another printer, and also another envelope size. If the width of your envelope is wider than your Letter (or possibly your main document width), then this causes the envelope to have to print in landscape mode, which might be the source of some of these bugs.

The software to get all of this right is complex, and requires careful handshakes between LO, printer driver, printer driver filters, and printer. Just be aware that some of these issues could be with your printer or printer driver and not LO, although others of these issue seem like they are definitely inside LO.

For now, I'll be hand writing my envelopes, or possibly cutting and pasting addresses to an envelope.
