Printer abort creates blank page

Issue #162 resolved
Dave Peters created an issue

On OS X, printer.abort terminates the print job without causing a blank page but on Linux you get a blank page every time even if nothing was written.

This is a bigger problem because also on Linux, the printer.canvas and printer.pagewidth are not valid until after a printer.begindoc and so you cannot get the page parameters without committing to a bank page. If abort worked without a blank page then you would be able to do printer.begindoc, get the information and then follow with printer.abort if you needed to change orientation before starting the page.
