------- Additional Comments From alex.cherepanov at artifex.com  2009-02-16 11:31 -------
Ghostscript has to look ahead into the input stream to decide whether it's
PostScript, EPS, or PDF. That's why about 1K of characters are accumulated before
the processing starts. There's no buffering afterwards.

So the work around is easy. Fill the initial buffers with 1K of spaces and
enjoy unbuffered processing afterwards. Please confirm whether the proposed
work around is sufficient for you.
