Well, all other postscript than the one generated by ps-print.el is
recognized and treated correctly.  That includes using a2ps og
enscript in various ways from within emacs.  I also find it suspicious
that Preview.app in OS X cannot display the file correctly (it does
with other postscript files).

So what is it about the ps-print-generated postscript files fools the
printer and Preview.app, that's the question.

That is tongue-in-cheek, surely?
