#687536 - INTERNAL - we need a automated dependency tool

assign: ??

used with Epson Stylus Color 1520, the stcany driver from v8 prints at
the top of the page: 284.4 @EJL and then continues, .... onto a second

#687545 - INTERNAL - Type 3 image with file data source in mask fails.
submitted by: alex

Type 3 image with file data source in the mask dictionary fails on gs
with "/typecheck in image".  The string data source works in this
context.  The file data source works for Type 1 images.

#687546 - USER - ps2pdf segfaults
assign: igor?

this applies to current gs 8.30 cvs HEAD on RedHat Linux various
versions (7.3 -- 9.0 -- FC2).  ps2pdf1(2|3|4) segfaults on the example
file at the second invocation of the DocumentSuppliedFont
/_ArialUnicodeMS

#687547 - CUSTOMER - /configurationerror in --setpagedevice--

assign: ray?

The attached file from the customer fails with: Error:

#687548 - USER - ps2pdf rotates some files 90 or 180 degrees

Even with "-dAutoRotatePages=/None" the pdf still comes out
rotated. This pdf is not rotated when it was processed with Adobe

st_zlib_state differ.  "./src/szlibc.c", line 32.1: 1506-382 (I) The
type "struct gs_memory_struct_typ.

#687551 - INTERNAL - Complete implementation of operators in TN 5044
submitted by: dan
assigned: dan

As part of the fix for 687364, part of the operators described in TN
5044 have been implemented.  Alex correctly points out that having
only part of the set implemented is dangerous.  This bug is being
openned as a place holder for the completion of the remaining
functions.

#687552 - USER - line join "drips" color (Solaris only)
assign: ??

s far as the user can tell, it seems that this "dripping color" effect
happens only on Solaris, only with certain combination of linewidth +
linejoin and only if doing a "save fill restore stroke" combination
("fill" alone seems to work fine).

The U.S. LZW patent expired on June 20, 2003, the counterpart Canadian
patent expires July 7, 2004, the counterpart patents in the United
