           Summary: Halftoned fill color rectangle has underlying problem.
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: master
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: Color
        AssignedTo: michael.vrhel at artifex.com

In investigating the pamcmyk4 vs plank differences, I came across problems when
running the following file at 300dpi, both banded and unbanded with both plank
and pamcymk4.


If you examine gx_dc_ht_colored_fill_rectangle (in gxcht.c) you'll see that it
falls into 2 cases; the first is an 'optimisation' case for the second.

As such disabling the first case should cause no differences in the output at
all - just a slowdown. Unfortunately, testing shows this not to be true.

This isn't a plank vs pamcmyk4 bug, so I'm trying to avoid burning more time on
it now - but I am raising this bug so the problem isn't forgotten.
