Ok, I see.  But is it still true that the `start-process' form of my
last mail worked, i.e., the process finished normally without being
killed?  That would be strange since that's pretty much the same what
doc-view does except that the latter might use a different

So if it really worked, please try:

(let* ((default-directory (or (unhandled-file-name-directory
                              (expand-file-name "~/")))
       (process (start-process "ps2pdf conversion"
                               "ps2pdf conversion output"
  (set-process-sentinel process
                        #'(lambda (proc event)
                            (message "Process: %s had the event `%s'"
                                     proc event))))  ;; C-x C-e here

Now that's really exactly what doc-view does.
