That page prints perfectly here (Solaris 2.8/SPARC) and "ps2ps", "gv"
and the KDE PostScript viewer on SuSE8.2 show five pages without
problems. Something weired is going on... very weired... ;-(
At least I have a testcase now which I can show the CUPS people on the
LinuxTag (http://www.linuxtag.de/) on Friday... ;-/

Umpf... peter's idea was great except one minor flaw... the
"xphelloworld" tool only prints one page... ;-(
OK... last test before I have to start the preparation of my LinuxTag
Remove the "GISWxprintglue" package, install the "GISWxprint" package
(the one which comes with it's own version of the Xprint server
("GISWxprintglue" uses the version shipped with Solaris
("/usr/openwin/bin/Xprt"))) and bump the resolution from 300DPI to
600DPI as you did before... does that change anything ?
