ps4pdf uses the above box width and height and clips everything
which is outside of this box. With your unit=0.5 you have only
2.5mm for thew depth.
Use \begin{pspicture}[shift=-2](-8,-1)(8,0.5)
and everything should work. It is easy to control with
\psframebox{...}, then you'll what will be clipping area.
