Well, nothing that can be done client side (i.e. possible
to include in OL), but we solved the print issue server

The background map and each overlay are fetched in singleTile
mode and stored as temporary files. These are then merged
into one file using JAI and sent back to the browser. Then
the temporary files are cleaned up in some way I can't say
at the moment.
