I use texlive7 (from the cd) with OSX10.1.5
I reprodure the problem (exactly).
Here is what i find
altpdflatex --keep-psfile yoursample.tex
produces au ps file who shows the same problem : it is a dvips problem, not
a ps2pdf problem (right ?)
if I try
latex yoursample.tex
dvips yoursample.dvi
ps2pdf yoursample.ps
i get a pdffile that is perfect.
So the problem is probably a dvips options problem in altpdflatex.
Hope this help.
