I'm running xdvik 22.40k and ghostscript 8.00 on a Linux
(Suse 7.3) machine. It's currently hanging everytime
after it's done displaying a ps-file. It is possible to
communicate with xdvi - killing it using Q for example.
xdvi was running happily together with gs 7.05 so I
guess they have change a return status or something in
gs 8.00...

Using the different debug bits doesn't show anyhting
strange... The output from running xdvi with debug 8 is
attached.

Regards, Hans

    Forwarded this to Paul, since it also affects his version
    xdvi-22.67.

    Stefan sent me a sample file which reproduces the problem.

    I found that if I change the first line of the file from

    %!PS-Adobe-2.0 EPSF-2.0

    to

    %!PS-Adobe-2.0

    then the problem goes away. The file is printed by
    (test.eps) run.

    Anybody know what's changed in this area?

    I can confirm this behaviour with xdvik 22.40k. Changing
    %!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0
    to
    %!PS-Adobe-3.0
    the problem goes away. I checked the reported bugs for gs
    and the word EPSF was not mentioned in any reports. (I have
    not checked the changelog.)

    I've found out something. If you run gs at the command
    line, and type

    GS> (test.eps) run

    at the GS prompt, then (if test.eps says it's EPSF), it'll
    do a showpage
    automatically.

    Is this correct behavior?

    Fixed in xdvi-22.68. (Added -dNOEPS on the gs command line.)

    Thanks very much for the fix Paul; I've released it as
    xdvik-22.40s (and added it to the CVS HEAD).
