Possible 4.3.0 regression - mail merge to an envelope paper size selects default print paper size. [closed]

This might be a regression error in Writer version 4.3.0 ?? It works correctly in version 4.2.6.

I have a Writer form set up for a #6 3/4 envelope with database fields to fill in. When I try to print the form with mail merge fields Writer appears to select the default paper size of the printer (usually 8.5 x 11) instead of using the actual document page size. If I print just the form - with no data - it correctly selects the envelope size.

Am I missing a new setting or something - or is this a regression? I hope it is not a new feature :))

Thanks -

Magically fixed in version

(I had also noted the problem occurring with any non-standard page size that had any variable field (such as Date, Time) as well as database fields. All that is fixed now.)
