Hello all,

After an update to pst-node 1.24, the following minimal example:






Produces an error not unlike that listed on the main page, but one which is
not resolvable by the addition of the -dNOSAFER flag to the relevant config
files. The output:

I am unsure if this is end-user stupidity or a true issue with pst-node and
xdvipdfmx, which is the driver I'm attempting to use.

Best and Thanks,
