  It's a bug known since a long time. It would be difficult to correct, as it
is related to general parsing of psmatrix environment (because you can have a
special value for inter-row space like \\[1cm] and the bug is related to the
difference between \\ new-line [...] and \\[...] new-line).

  In any case, I didn't succeed to correct it... Nevertheless, workaround is
easy. Mine is the same than yours, but 0cm is clearest and use default
inter-row space.

  Look at generic/pstricks.bug in PST 97 distribution or at the Bugs page
on PSTricks WWW pages.
