[pstricks] xcolor problem with dumped format

I'm puzzled by by the following behavior, and hope someone can shed  
some light.

If I use the preamble (the one I'm actually using has much more, but  
this displays the problem)


then I can process


without problem, and with the correct color. However, if I dump a  
format from the preamble using Ross Moore's ldump.sty, I get a format  
which works just fine for everything except the named color. The .eps  
file created does not contain color.pro, unlike the first case. I can  
force it to be included by entering \special[header=color.pro] after  
\begin{document}, but this seems a bit ad hoc. I tried dumping a  
format using Davis Carlisle's mylatex.ltx, but could not make this  
work starting from pdftex -ini.

(Using TeXLive 2007 with latest update to pstricks package.)
