I don't know why you can print Euro sign by that setting.
With the above setting, both EURO SIGN and CURRENCY SIGN are
encoded to the same byte #xA4, and usually it should be
printed as CURRENCY SIGN.

If you still have Emcas 22, please do:
  C-u M-x ps-print-buffer RET ~/temp.ps RET
and send me ~/temp.ps.

I've just fixed that bug; i.e. the bug of signalling an error.

With that Emacs, please do:
  C-u M-x ps-print-buffer RET ~/temp2.ps RET
and send me ~/temp2.ps.
