I have had a similar poblem with MusiXTeX. I'm not sure what causes it, 
but it seems to happen when the system is configured to convert 
postscript files automatically to PDF before sending to the printer. 
What type of system/printer do you have? Are you going directly to PDF? 
Assuming that your printer is a postscript printer, try opening a .ps of 
your document in Ghostview, and send it directly from Ghostview (I think 
the option is called "send postscript to printer"). This may make the 
problem go away.
