PArtially replicated: Replicated on: - Redhat 7.3, ghostscript-6.52-9.5, tetex-1.0.7-47.1, gv-3.5.8-18.7x, ivritex-cvs Not replicated on: - debian unstable, ghostscript 7.07-1, tetex-2.0.2-5, gv-3.5.8-30.2, ivritex-cvs After doing some crossings I tend to suspect that the difference in ghostscript made the difference. > > Notice that if "hebrew" is removed from the babel options list, the PostScript > is legible again. > > Sadly, I don't know how to correct it, or even why it happens.
