Issue 176164: Printed document text is misplaced when printing using system dialog.

Reported by, Feb 14 2013

Issue description

UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.31 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/26.0.1409.0 Safari/537.31

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Load the following page:

2. Print using System Dialog (Control+Shift+P)

3. Select any printer, can be virtual PDF printer or anything.

What is the expected behavior?
This is the expected printing result, I printed this using "Print Preview"


What went wrong?
Text is located lower than it should be creating some damage to table bottom borders, text is 2 pixels lower.


Did this work before? Yes It worked fine when SKIA_TEXT was disabled long time ago.

Chrome version: 26.0.1409.0  Channel: n/a
OS Version: 6.1 (Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2)

To save you guys some testing:

If you build chromium with enable_skia_text = 0 on webkit options then there is no problem with printing using system dialog.
When enable_skia_text = 1 the bug is back.

The fix is not just disabling skia text since it will create problems to all text rendered using webgl.

I don't remember the exact build when SKIA_TEXT was enabled.
