This actually has been a known bug for almost 10 years running; currently the 
only (in-GIMP) workaround is to pad your image canvas size out by the desired 

Bugzilla report:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=562619 (since 2008)

(The centering option technically does work fine, since all it does is 
calculate the corresponding print margins; it's the print margins 
themselves that are the problem.)
