Mac OSX Leopard and Ubuntu 8.10 share the problem:

$ gs --version
$ xdvi grfguide.dvi
xdvi-xaw: Warning: Raw Postscript commands on page 9 may be rendered
xdvi-xaw: Warning: Raw Postscript commands on page 8 may be rendered

The rotation examples are indeed not rendered correctly.

The Ubuntu system also has TL2007 from the distro.   The messages are similar,
(with xdvi-xaw --> xdi-bin), and the display has the same problems.
