Ahh.  Now everything works much better.

I noticed this, so I included an uppercase and lowercase version of
all the CM fonts in the GS Fontmap file.  That, in combination with the
prologues:=2 seems to make everything work.  dvips complains (it says
the font used in the file isn't in the mapping file) when I produce
a PS file from the DVI file, but it still seems to produce good output.

What is the magical "prologues:=2;" doing?

Thank you very much!
