Thanks for response, but this is the complete latex file that causes the
problem---this problem does not occur when using latex/ghostscript---only
pdflatex. I am using the most current version of everything and would be
pleased to send you a copy of the ps graphic, pdf graphic, latex file, and
my log file with file list if you have the time and think you might be able
to help.
