Just to add some more data points, I tested the attached MkXL file on
two printers, and the file printed perfectly on both.

Printer 1:
   Brother HL-3170CDW
   Printed via running "cat test.mkxl.pdf | nc Colour-Printer.local 9100"
   
Printer 2:
   HP M227f LaserJet
   Printed from the PDF file on a USB stick
   
Neither printer is anything fancy; they're both fairly inexpensive home
laser printers. I've got a much older Brother laser printer that I may be
able to test with next week.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
