I've got the same problem with other version of Python (2.2.2), 
ReportLab (1.17) and printer (Xerox). When switched the Language Level 
option in Acrobat Reader print settings dialog to 1 or 2 the problem 
dissapears. YMMV however, the problem because the very problem appears 
in Linux and ghostscript filters, too).
