have found the a2ps config file incorrect for my needs in printing a booklet. I think that whether it is a bug or not may depend upon how the printer is setup. We have our printer set up for duplex printing, and the default a2ps -=book prints the pages incorrectly. I have set my .a2ps/a2psrc file to this, replacing psset to pstops:

# This variable defines a hook for `lp'.  The output is piped into
# psbook in order to print a booklet. Source /etc/a2ps.cfg 11/8/04
# Modified from psset to pstops to tumble correctly.
# Modified psnup for pdf in A5 pages. Variable: lp.hook.book \
#?o! psbook #?V,,-q, | psnup -s1 -2 #?V,,-q, | pstops '2:0,1U(1w,1h)' | \
! echo "Cannot be used with more than two pages per sheet." >&2 ; exit 1!

I also modified psnup because I typically print in booklet form, documents which are typeset onto A5,
