Thanks for going through such great lengths and testing on arch!
The problem does indeed seem to be with ghostscript. Fortunately, my
university hasn't updated their installs in ~5 years:
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
% ghostscript --version
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
Previewing works fine there.

On arch, the Arch User Repositories contain a ghostscript-svn package,
but after building and installing it, it turns out that it provides
gs 9.03 which seems to suffer from the same troubles.
I guess I'll just have to wait for a new release of preview­latex or
