Description of problem:
ps2pdf generates funny output on some sequences of test input.
I have noticedr:
test in the ps file:
renders in the pdf file as:
Also, dots above equations in (from math mode latex) do not properly align over
the char they are supposed to be over, buf offset to the left.
I will attach a postsctipt file which suffers these problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.take the attched ps file
2.check it's ok in gv
4. compare the pdf with the ps
5. note the differences!
I have not found a work around for this bug, and it is stopping me from
upgrading my current old desktop linux install to a shiney new redhat 9 one!
hhmmmm, actually it seems to also depend on which version of latex the original
file was compiled on. However, the file I will attach will look fine in ps but
render to pdf wrongly.

test.ps output from oowriter
copy of my current resume generated from oowriter in .ps format, that works
fine in ggv, but when run through ps2pdf* the right hand margin disappears, and
the text runs flush with the RHS of the page (as previewed in ggv)
ok - solved.
