What OS/platform are you using? Do you compile mono yourself or use 
official packages? Your Windows screenshot, was it taken using Mono for 
Windows or MS .NET?
Mono printing seems to be broken for me since at least 1.9.
I get the same results as you (text missing) since Fedora 9 + Mono 1.9. 
The problem is still present in Fedora 10 + Mono 2.0.1. Also present in 
SVN. BTW, I'm running 64-bit Linux.

I filed bug #449482 and attached your screenshot.
