[pstricks] Error with pst-eps

Hi all,

I'm experimenting with pst-eps and when I run the code below LaTeX tells me:

PSTricks error.  See User's Guide for further information.
                  Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
! File `pstricks.pro' not found.
\@pstrickserr ... immediate help.}\errmessage {#1}

I have pstricks.pro properly installed in $TEXMF/dvips/pstricks and have 
no trouble with PSTricks whatsoever unless I use pst-eps. If I set 
headers=none in \PSTtoEPS the graphics display perfectly in the output 
file (though the text doesn't). The resulting EPS file can't be 
displayed on its own, but it can be included in the main document just 
fine (which would seem to indicate the main document finds pstricks.pro 
just fine). I had a look at pst-eps.tex, but no obvious causes for this 
error jump out at me.

I'm guessing that \PSTtoEPS only works for graphics objects and that 
this is the reason the text I place with \rput doesn't show up. Correct?





% The following works:
   \rput[c](2.5,2.5){Hello, world!}%

% This does not work:
\psset{checkfile=true, makeeps=all}%
\PSTtoEPS[bbllx=0, bblly=0, bburx=5, bbury=5, headers=all]%
   \rput[c](2.5,2.5){Hello, world!}%
