The macro \pst at getydimdim is now a part of pstricks.tex. It was formerly in pstricks-add.tex, so it may suffice to add \usepackage{pstricks-add} after loading all other pstricks packages. If that doesn't work, it might be time to refresh your entire pstricks collection, which has seen many changes in the last year.
