This happens when the default output format type is a typeset 
notation.  If you want the old behavior where everything goes into
one cell, choose "OutputForm" from the Default Output Format Type
submenu of the Cell menu.  This will, unfortunately, also effect
normal output cells, and may not be what you want.

The following function sets and restores the format type automatically,
so you can have the print output you want without effecting normal


Just use mergedPrint in place of Print.
