I've got it ! It was not a bug, but it needs to be explain. I'd forget
this tricky aspect of object "plan".

Sometimes we need only draw a plane, so the solid type is well
designed for it. But sometimes we need more (example : for
projections), origin, range, scale, etc... so there is an other type
which i call "plantype".

Let create a plane with \psSolid and give it the name "myplane"

   args={1.0 0.5 0.125 [-1.0 1.5 1]},
   ngrid=0.2 0.2,

2 variables are create :
    * "myplane" which design the plantype object
    * "myplane_s"  which design the solid type object

If you want apply a "fusion", you need solid type objects, so you call
the variable "myplane_s".

That's it !
