Changed title from: Colors missing in AI9 file.

The remaining problem with this file, is that when rendered we get various
'stray' lines drawn. These take the form of 'cross hairs' with a circle around
the outside of the radial fill, and occasional speckles on the image itself.

These are due to the fact that shadings do not guarantee to only draw each
pixel once. In particular radial shadings draw the pixels falling on the axes
twice. For solid plotting this does not matter - for transparent rendering it

The solution is probably going to be to setup a knockout group around the
shading if antialiasing is used.

Passing back to Michael, as he's done this before. If the change needs to
happen in the postscript, he may well choose to pass this hot potato onto Alex.
