The file that generates the problem


Just installed ghostpdl 8.71 on a Slackware 13.1 (32bit), the installation went
without any events, no dependencies needed.

Transforming the files to pdf worked great (for more complex files).

I have a problem with:

pcl6 -sDEVICE=nullpage -sOutputFile=test text.pcl

(- you can download text.pcl form http://fbx.ro/qt5yixgwj943yv3r -)

The error output is the same regardless of the device that I'm using:

Warning interpreter exited with error code -1
Flushing to end of job
PCL XL error
    Subsystem:  GRAPHICS
    Error:      Internal error 0xffffffff
    Operator:   SetFont
    Position:   19
file position of error = 136325
End of page 1, press <enter> to continue.

The attached file is printing ok (lpr -p Device text.pcl)

The file is from the spool of cups server, generated by the driver of a HP
CP3525, an it contains a really simple list of names, with a font that probably
the printer has and my slack box not.
(This is just a theory - started using ghostpdl few hours ago)

Thank you very much!
