LibreOffice will not prompt for credentials when printing to a CUPS printer

Hi, I'm currently trying to print to a CUPS printer on a windows domain print server. This is working fine in every other app in Lubuntu (leafpad, firefox etc etc). When printing a CUPS username/password box prompts for network credentials to pass onto the printer. For some reason this does not happen in LibreOffice. I have seen a couple of bugs regarding this issue that were last posted about over a year ago which said the problem was LibreOffice. Can anyone confirm? Thanks.
