Just out of curiosity, I also printed the Excel to a PDF, via Excel 2010 with PDF-XChange Printer V6 Standard (6.0.322.5) and it prints correctly.
Something to remark when editing the printererror.pdf is that the picture/banner at the bottom has multiple parts in form of overlays.
When I select and delete (or move out of the way) the pieces one by one, i.e. :
1) first the text (Kalender für ...),
2) then a complete banner,
3) then a partial banner,
I come to an underlying banner that seems to be complete.
So, I suppose that Excel 2000 sends the (complete / uncomplete) banner a few times to the printer, and in that manner creates the visible problem.
The edited PDF - cleaned from overlaying banners - is attached at this post.
What you can do, by means of a test, is repeat a few times the print to PDF-XChange Printer. If the problem consistently keeps coming back, then print to a real printer and check if the problem is also visible on paper ... (probably it will not be).
