I cannot reproduce this problem with a Mathematica 4 front end for
Linux.  I would encourage you to send a copy of a notebook and 
style sheet that can be used to demonstrate this effect to Wolfram
Research Technical Support <support at>.  It would also
be nice if you could include with your correspondence a transcript
of the syntax you used to invoke NotebookPrint[], the version of
Mathematica you are using as returned by evaluating

LinkWrite[$ParentLink, FrontEnd`Value["$FullVersion"]];

and a copy of the PostScript file your front end generates.
