After upgrading from
pst-plot.tex    2010/02/11 1.10 `pst-plot' (tvz,hv)
pst-plot.tex    2010/03/15 1.11 `pst-plot' (tvz,hv)
the problem was solved!

I have another problem which is not related to the previous one. When
using the the option linestyle=dashed, the code compiles fine, however,
the conversion from PS to PDF fails. The compilation scheme is this one:
1. latex test.tex
2. dvips test.dvi
3. ps2pdf test.ps

latex and dvips run fine, but ps2pdf gives an error:

Minimal example:

Could the problem come from outdated files? and more precisely .pro
files? Which .pro files should I upgrade?
