NEW BUGS
--------

#592160 - USER - alphaimage is broken
assign: rayjj?

The alphaimage operator is broken. This is caused by
an error in ImageType 1 implementation where alpha
component is not handled correctly. The attached patch
corrects the initialisation of the image enum so that
at least the correct number of samples are consumed. 

#592164 - USER - alpha storage device does not compile
assign: giles?

The alpha storage device (gdevalph.c) is not included
in any build and does not even compile. With the
attached patch it can at least be compiled

#592829 - USER - Bad image quality

Not enough information to reprode.  More info requested.

#592833 - USER - Bad image and font appearance
assign: igorm?

not correct.  The bolded text is no longer bold, and teh characters are wrong
in some places.

Requested test file.

#592876 - USER - pdf2ps results in pale deformed fonts

#592925 - USER - Unable to open initial device (winXP)
assign: ghostgum?

commandlines.  Russell has followed up.

#592930 - USER - Setting page orientation
assign: ghostgum?

User is having trouble setting page orientation correctly.  Russell has 
responded.  The bug should probably be closed.

When processing tms25C.ps with pdfwrite, the resulting

instead of two. 

#593355 - USER - Multiple Master font failure

PDF with Multiple Master fonts. It looks like GS MM
