I tried following patch. It looks like it works. (I'm not so deep in code
to see if this has other side effects.)

Subject: [PATCH] Postscript print region colorized again (bug#16866)

After changing the region handling the region itself is defined by an
overlay with a face.

When print a region the code for assembling the postscript data now gets the
face of the overlay instead of the face of the text to print. This results
in an BW printing instead of a colored printing.

As suggested by Stefan Monnier this patch changes deactivate-mark to
unhighlight an activated region and then calling deactivate-mark
before printing.

With kind regards,

Stefan-W. Hahn                          It is easy to make things.
                                        It is hard to make things simple.
