  I cannot guess what can happen on your installation, as it can depend of
many things. I just can say that the source code is correct.

  Nevertheless, before any other investigations, first check that you really
look at the resulting (PostScript) file. A common pitfall for beginners
is to look at intermediate files (dvi) which doesn't show most of PostScript
effects, as nodes related ones you use here (some recent dvi viewvers
nevertheless introduce new functionnalities and can direclty render a part of
PSTricks effects).
