Gutenprint drivers report undersized margins as "printer not responding"

I've got a HP Photosmart B110a wireless printer with JetDirect, to which Haiku can successfully transfer data using the JetDirect transport addon. However, it supports the elderly PCL3C language and nothing newer so Gutenprint is needed to make it print.
When set up with a standard PCL5 or 6 driver it "prints" (either stalling or gibberish, as expected). When set up with as any printer in Gutenprint, you instantly get "printer not responding" on attempting a job. It works on other architechtures as a Deskjet 1220C
This is being returned from libprint (GraphicsDriver.cpp) but I'm not skilled enough to figure out why this is the case. The printer also allegedly supports IPP but this appears not to be working.
