I am pleased to report that the Claws Mail printing issue in FreeBSD,
was not related to Claws Mail.  :)

Anything that was printed (I had installed the PC-BSD distribiution.),
would be chopped off at the top, e-mails, web pages, etc.

Not to mention that overall, it ran very slow on this particular
hardware.  It's now running Debian Linux again.
