unwanted blank sheet between jobs

I have an HP Laserjet 1100 connected to my router/firewall/printserver PC. The printer works fine from a Windows computer on the network.

My Ubuntu Dapper computer uses the recommended hpijs driver. The printer configuration is set to UNIX Printer(LPD). It prints fine but...

After each print job, the printer feeds a blank sheet which is cooked in the print engine and comes out warped - thus spoiling the sheet.

I can find no way of turning this 'feature' off.

Does anyone know how to fix this please?

It feeds the extra sheet even when printing a single page file from gedit. It also does it when printing a document from WRITE. Printing the same .odf from OO.o in Windows to the same network printer does NOT feed the extra blank sheet at the end.
