Binary is not changed but some support files are updated.
However the important "config.ps", in which
%%DocumentPaperSizes: Screen
for powerdot is defined, is not changed.
Powerdot writes the papersize into dvi with the
help of geometry. dvips reads the size and determines
%%DocumentPaperSizes: Screen
by reading the config.ps by default. Please examine your dvi.

Your test file is ok here.
