[pstricks] Problem with pstParaboloid

With the recent update of several of the pstricks-related packages, I too experienced the problems with pst-3dplot discussed in Vol 85, issues 9 and 10 (and perhaps others).  As suggested by Herbert, I updated my copy of the 3dplot files, and as expected, the problem went away.  However an problem arose with pstParaboloid.  Basically the paraboloid is not rendered.  When I do my standard latex->dvips->pspdf, I get a compiler error in the final step.  See minimal example below.  The first "image" is cut from my document.  When the line containing pstParaboloid is active, the compilation fails.  The second "image" comes from the latest pst-3dplot documentation.

minimal example:


\begin{figure}[ht] \centering
%  \pstThreeDPut(1.5,0,0){\pstParaboloid[RotY=-90,SegmentColor={[cmyk]{0,0,0,1}},showInside=false]{.5}{.1}}%
  \caption{Body-fixed Penetrator Coordinate System}\label{f-11}

 \pstParaboloid{5}{1}% Hoehe 5 und Radius 1
