Many thanks to this list for the upgrade fix. I have upgraded to 5.97,
released November 22, and it works great. Good thing I did not come
upon this problem a month ago or there wouldn't have been a fix. Seems
I am on the cutting edge by producing PDF files using latex and
non-standard fonts with ghostscript. I know the older ghostscript only
did curved pdf fonts for the standard Adobe 35 fonts.
I am glad to see Alladin is on top of the problem, and that Adobe is
addressing the issues.
I have spent so much time trying to get this working, rather than
writing the book. Looks like I can get back to book writing now.
