Are you using an "up-to-date" version of ghostscript? If so, that is
the problem. The last version of ghostscript that does not exhibit
this problem is ghostscript-gnu-7.05_5. I am not sure about the
version number of ghostscript-afpl but recent versions exhibit this
Try reverting your version of ghostscript to 7.05_5 and see if that
fixes the problem.
