That's as weird as they come.
Raise the issue on SuSE's site, and google for a mention of it
Also check the display of ghostscript. Print a multipage doc to file, and display it
It _could_ be ghostscript, and the check is easy. Try also with a2ps, if you have that installed.
Keey an eye on the site. When suse find it, they'll issue an update. Make sure to install updates.

Any clues there?

Reason: error in post
You did that from an X terminal, right? If not, do it that way.
a2ps is 'any-to-postscript' printer for text files, etc. It uses ghostscript.
Now I tried to do this the way it should work, but this proved tricky. Xpdf (which uses ghostscript) and printing all work fine here. It would display pdfs, however, and any of x11 the options in the output of 'gs -h' would work, e.g.
gs -sDEVICE=x11rg32x some.pdf
Postscript was a bit fussier and wouldn't operate from the same dir(?) but this worked
gs -sDEVICE=x11 /usr/share/ghostscript/8.15/examples/tiger.eps (A lovely image, btw)
gs -sDEVICE=x11rg32x /usr/doc/gimp-2.2.15/quick_reference.ps and anything else I tried with a full path name was fine.
although it didn't work for me from that same dir :-/. You said there was some bug.What have you discovered? Keep your eyes on SuSE's stuff.
Bugzilla says this problem is the same as bug 628233 and it's to do with CUPS and should be fixed with an update. Does Xterminal mean from a 'print to file' file? If so, the answer is yes. I'm afraid the rest of the suggestions are beyond me! A newbie, after all.
You could try regressing: install bits from previous version, cups, & ppd for starters
Start with ppds - use anybody's and go for it. Cups own pixma thing would be an idea
Then Cups. I wouldn't try to settle all nagging dependencies - just bang it in for a quick try. I wouldn't worry going backwards.
rpm -ivh --middle-finger :-).
lastly, gs -h lists a pile of drivers and if you fancy it try using them directly. The Canon ones bj*, cbj*, s400* all seem to use the same basic format In a terminal
