Printing to specific scale doesn't work - wrong scale

If you select a printout to be at a specific scale, it's wrong (off by 
about 5%).

If you are using a custom print layout with a scalebar, it's easier to 
notice right away. Print something at 1:10000, for example. Then grab an 
actual 1:10000 scale and you'll see that the scale bar on the page is 
too small. From 0 to 600 metres, it should measure 60mm, but is actually 
only 56mm. This translates to a 40metre error when scaling things off of 
the printout. The scalebar does actually match the scale of the drawing 
though, but it is not 1:10000, as it claims.

Has anyone run into this? I've just submitted it as a bug....maybe 
there's a workaround though....
