Yes I was up-to-date with ghostscript and that indeed was the problem.
I forced the deinstall of my ghostscript-gnu-7.07, and installed instead
from the packages, version 7.05_4.
My printing problem has gone now!
Is the origin of the problem located? Will it be fixed in the next
release of ghostscript-gnu? Has this problem been reported to the
ghostscript-gnu developer community?
