I tried various page margin adjustments with the -m parameter, but ACPU
still shrank the chart and always by the same amount....hence my
frustration.  Actually the problem is a well documented one and is actively
being discussed on various forums.

        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
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 ?
