I can reproduce this on Fedora 8.

AFAICS the problem is that LilyPond generates PostScript that may
include binary data (for fonts). Traditional tools like psnup and
friends are text-oriented and get hopelessy confused.

I get these binary font data for New Century Schoolbook and
Emmenthaler; the rate of success may depend on the actual fonts that
are used.
