Created an attachment (id=7969)
 --> (http://bugs.ghostscript.com/attachment.cgi?id=7969)

I use Ghostscript 9.04 under Ubuntu Oneiric 64-bit.

After fixing the library problems which caused bug 692539, I could turn the
PostScript file book.ps attached there to a PDF file using Ghostscript, either
manually via

ps2pdf book.ps book-ps2pdf.pdf

or CUPS on Oneiric does

/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstopdf 1 1 1 1 '' book.ps > book-pstopdf.pdf

which also uses Ghostscript with the "pdfwrite" device.

If I try to render these files with Ghostscript, output device does not matter,
I got the problem at least with "cups" (both color space 1/RGB and 17/RGBW),
"ps2write", and "x11alpha", I get always a segmentation fault on page 4, where
the figure is.

gs book-ps2pdf.pdf

is enough to reproduce the segfault, at least on Linux/Unix.

The sample PDF files display perfectly with evince (Poppler-based).

Sample files attached.
