           Summary: Infinite loop converting PostScript to PDF
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: PDF Writer
        AssignedTo: ken.sharp at artifex.com
        ReportedBy: marcos.woehrmann at artifex.com
         QAContact: gs-bugs at ghostscript.com

The customer reports and I've verified an infinite loop when converting the attached PostScript file to 
PDF; the customer reported it with 8.62 but head (r8827) fails the same way.

The command line I'm using:

  bin/gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -o test.pdf ./p4_x1.ps

Note when converting the file to a bitmap image (such at tiff24nc) the infinite loop does not happen, 
but Ghostscript reports: 

  A Marker caused a PostScript error, continuing processing...

Additional information from the customer:

In my investigation, if I replace the string "SUFQQV+CourierNewPSMT"  with  "MDYOKA+ArialMT"  in the 
file,  then the problem goes away.
 Both "SUFQQV+CourierNewPSMT" and "MDYOKA+ArialMT" are CID-fonts embedded in the ps file.
