If I recall, ghostview isn't necessarily based on Aladdin Ghostscript, so
it may give different results than gs or ps2ascii. I'd suggest trying gs
or ps2ascii directly on a few of the troublesome files, to see if you can
get to the bottom of the cause. If you can get your hand on different
versions of gs, I'd suggest trying them as well.
