Dear Alexander,

I suppose it diesn't work the expected way, because with LINES there is 
nothing to CLIP, although you blow up the line to a width of 5 pt. A 
line is a line.

Here an approach to define a FAT line with the detour of a \psframe and  
a linewidth of 0 pt. This works the way it should, however you have to 
position the frames in a different way as you do with \psline...
Maybe you find a better approach. Herbert manages it with the opacity 
and not with CLIPPING.

Try this:
