paperconf confirms that on my Debian system - both the brand new one and the
old one - a4 is the default paper format.

Well, in one there is gv 3.7.4 and page numbers are cut; in the other there is
gv 3.6.5 and the ps file is perfectly displayed.  On the other hand, your gv
3.7.4 also shows it up fine, so it could maybe be a problem of Emacs (my new
version is or of Debian.  But the Debian list didn't help, so I
don't know how to work it out.  It's really annoying.
