double spacing

I have two servers, one running Red Hat, the other (new) running Centos. I have set up all my printers and when printing from my software, everything is fine. But when I print from a line command on the Centos server, all the files double space.

Totally baffled. I'm just doing a standard lp command, no frills. The same command on the Red Hat works as I expected. I thought maybe there was something different with Centos, and it was using the -d as double space as per the pr command, but even without this, it still double spaces. I've tried just lp, as well as lp -d printername filename.

Thanks for any help
