I rushed to confirm notworking was OK. 

Using -sDEVICE=ps2write instead of -sDEVICE=pswrite as we were using during
debugging we get the segmentation fault on both linux systems and a windows
workstation. 

Nevertheless files like multipdf2_mp.pdf are our primary concern and
multipdf2_mp_simplified.pdf fails in our systems too. 

Using any program to preprocess the pdf would be great for our purpose. Our
current solution is to replace the masked images with non-masked DCTencoded ones
which work without problems but result in *10 file size.
