What about /etc/papersize?

/etc/papersize is auto-generated by SuSEconfig, based on the value of
the RC_LANG variable, as defined in /etc/sysconfig/language.

Here RC_LC_PAPER was set to "". I changed it to letter and restarted YaST2
printer, but it didn't help. I suppose the change to language probably only
takes effect after log out and back in, and I'm not prepared to do that 20+
minute process for a while.
You need to run "SuSEconfig" to activate a change to RC_LANG, at least
as far as /etc/papersize is concerned. No need to log out.

What are the current values of your RC_LANG (not in your environment,
but the in /etc/sysconfig file) and contents of /etc/papersize ?
