You should report this to the texlive list; go to <http://www.tug.org/mailman/listinfo/tex-live> to leave a message. If you don't join the list say so in your message so folks can write directly to you.

Hi Manfred, Herb,

indeed original source has a problem with dvips+ps2pdf route,
but I wonder if code is legal. I am not familiar with beamer, but
in standard hyperref uses, I would use \hyperref[label]{text}
to create a link to a LaTeX-label, and \hyperlink would be use
with \hypertarget.

Anyway, after looking a bit inside beamer doc I cooked up the
following which seems to compile fine both with pdflatex
and latex+dvips+ps2pdf

\documentclass{beamer}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\hypertarget<2>{threeitems}{}
\begin{itemize}
\item<1-> First item.
\item<2-> Second item.
\item<3-> Third item.
\end{itemize}
