Description Randy B 2004-11-24 11:00:50 EST
I'm really not that familiar with the inner workings of ghostscript, 
so this may be more of a headsmack than a bug.

Recently, I migrated from RH-9.0 to FC3; I use my linux system to 
develop a lot of Perl for my company, and specifically use a2ps and 
ps2pdf to generate nice hardcopies of the source for reviews using 
the following script, called 'pl2pdf':

The above script used to put out nicely formatted, two page per sheet 
code, provided the code stayed within 80 columns (which I strictly 
hold to).  Now, I get lines that overrun from one page to another, 
especially in the raw postscript (ps2pdf seems to clean up some of 
it).  Fixed fonts, strings, and keywords all do this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): n/a

How reproducible: Every time

Steps to Reproduce: See attached shell script
Actual results: See PDF attachment

Expected results: Properly rendered code @ 80 columns

Additional info: See the attachment for a sanitized (corporate 
reasons) piece of code that [mostly] displays what I'm talking 
about.  I've used kghostview, ggv, xpdf, and Acrobat Reader (latest 
all) to render this, and come up with the same results in each.
