Hi,
        that's rather a problem, since the sole purpose of Adobe C.P.U. (ACPU) 
is
to print test charts ! Have you tried altering the page margin that printtarg
allows, using the -m parameter ? It's possible that ACPU is scaling the test
chart to fit it within the printable area (although this would be unhelpful
behavior for a test chart print application - it should always crop rather than 
scale).

Perhaps it's worth raising this issue with Adobe on one of
their forums, or on the Apple Colorsync list ?
