I haven't. I use a 3880 with Aperture 3.3.2 on 10.8.2.
Does printing work correctly when you don't cancel? Is there anything out-of-the-ordinary regarding your machine and printer set-up? Have you looked behind all your windows for a stray dialog box that is waiting to be closed?

Yes, everything prints correctly as expected if not cancelled. It does act like there is a window hiding somewhere, but it can not be found if it is there. You hit the nail on the head as to how it acts. In fact using smart corners to try to find all windows associated with Aperture shows nothing but the main window and print dialog. Its almost like some dialog box goes missing or is hiding somewhere... BTW, I am not running Aperture in full screen mode if that matters.

Me too. On both MBPs and the iMac.
After cancelling the System Print dialog, the Aperture print dialog cannot be cancelled and just beeps when pressing any button. I think this is a bug. You may want to send a bug report to Apple: From the main Aperture menu bar:
"Aperture➞Send Aperture Feedback" http://www.apple.com/feedback/aperture.html
To avoid "Force Quit" - for that may corrupt your Aperture library - I'd suggest to use the Terminal to quit Aperture; see my User Tip here:
LéonieAperture 3, OS X Mountain Lion, AP Version 3.4.1, Mac OS X 10.8.2

I tried this again with the new update of 3.4.3 and still see this same issue. Hopefully during the next update they get it cleaned up. Even using the terminal killall I see that I need to repair the library. Hope they fix this soon!

Have same issue using v3.4.3. Aperture hangs after canceling out of the system print menu (after checking printer settings, for example). Then need to force quit and get message about repairing the library. Is the library really at risk or is this another bug?

Force Quitting is always risky with a database application, for it prevents the stopped process from completing the transactions and closing the files properly.
If you force quit, you should always repair.
Better use the Terminal to quit Aperture, if it hangs in the "Print" dialog:

Not being able to exit the Aperture Print dialog box, and locking up Aperture, is a known problem according to a senior Aperture person I spoke with about two weeks ago. Something they are, I hope, going to fix - but not everyone is affeted (I had no problems until the Mountain Lion upgrade). If one continues to print from the printers dialog print box - no problem ; but, exiting back to Apertures print panel and then hit "cancel" the program locks up, cannot escape getting out of that printer dialog box.. On my system hitting the Esc. key or Command W will take me right back into Aperture w/o quiting the program; or having to "force quit".

Great! That works for me too with Aperture 3.4.3! Thanks for sharing!
Well, thanks for the work around. Hopefully they will get it fixed soon so those of us with half a brain and forgetful (maybe just me!) dont hang again. Then again, perhaps a 4.X release to show some love to those of us that use this software professionally. :-)
