Margins do not seem to hold when printed

Product

Operating system version

OSX 10.6.8

Description of the issue

Hi,

I am trying to put together some labels in a Filemaker DB.  I have set up the labels so that all the fields fit.  However when i go to print, the fields flip past the end of the label, and do not work as expected.

Is there some kind of hard coded bottom margin?  I have to stand fields well short of the bottom of a page (at least 5mm) to avoid this problem.  This means on a 2.5cm label I am losing 20% of my printable area.

I am using an edge to edge printer, and my margins are set to 0.04cm (less than half of 1mm).  Yes, my printer prints to the bottom edge of the page.

I have attached an image of the layout, and a preview of the print result.
