I've observed this as well with InDesign 13.0.1. Even crazier, I changed the paper size and InDesign did change the size from 8.5 x 11 to "Defined by Driver" ...after the second setup. However, the stated paper size is wrong from what the printer told it. InDesign states 51 x 66 picas, but the printer is set for 17 x 11 (102 x 66 picas). The printer is a Xerox Versant 180 via Fiery EX-i v1.1.
