   I don't know if this is the same problem, but I have had almost identical 
issues for the past couple of months. Specifically with LibreOffice (and 
openOffice) I print to a hp laserjet 4100N configured via cups on my arch 
server (phoenix). So my printing looks like this:

   [my box] -> LAN -> [phoenix] -> LAN -> 4100N

   When I start LO, if I open a document and print within the first minute or 
so, everything prints fine. If I don't print for a couple of minutes, then 
when I try to print, nothing happens. If I restart LO, then I can print again 
during the  first minute or so. I can always print from kde apps, so I don't 
know why the Gtk apps seem to have this problem.

   I don't know if this is the same rendering complete issue you are seeing, 
but this has been hard for me to isolate and track down.

   How are you testing to see that you are sticking at 'rendering completed'?
