I've made lots of different experiments, and I just found out, that with 
-Pcmz I'm getting bitmapped letters, but smooth \dots, which without the 
-Pcmz are also aliased, just like the letters. I haven't noticed that 
before, as I was using only letters and numbers, without any 
punctuation, but it shows that this switch works somehow, but I guess 
not quite like I it's supposed to. type1_default=true in 
/etc/texmf/dvips/updmap seems to have no effect at all, but -Pcmz switch 
in dvips makes the dots smooth.

OK, I'll send you my minimal test files. Thanks a lot for your help!
