           Summary: PDF output mangles clipping path
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: 9.04
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: PDF Writer
        AssignedTo: ken.sharp at artifex.com

Generative design in an EPS file. Re-interpret for different results.

When invoking `gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=myfile.pdf -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE
complex.eps`, the generated PDF shows strokes outside of established clipping
paths.

The input file is an EPS file which prints fine when sent directly to a
PostScript printer. This leads me to believe that, however sloppy the code may
or may not be from a professional PS perspective, it is not the input file
which is at fault.

Please note that the EPS is a generative design. If the reported bug is not
displayed when you first invoke gs, _please_ repeat: some of the patterns in
the EPS file exhibit less or none of the abherrent artifacts.
