Well, I for my part am now sure, that this is exactly the problem.
Consider the following example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{pst-text}
\begin{document}
\begin{pspicture}[showgrid](5,5)
\pstextpath{\pscurve(1,1)(2,1)(3,0)}{pstextpath}

\pstextpath{\pscurve(1,2)(2,2)(2,2)}{pstextpath}

\pstextpath{\pscurve(1,1)(1,1)(1,1)}{pstextpath}
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}

The first text is displayed correctly, the second text is cropped
because the path is too short for the text. The last one is set
left-aligned at the origin, because the path length is 0.
