[texhax] vertical lines in pstricks

A fillstyle vlines or hlines creates lines making a 45 degree angle  
with the horizontal (or vertical);  so to create truly vertical lines  
as a fillstye, I tried adding hatchangle=0 (for vlines) or  
hatchangle=90 (for hlines).  Either way, I get lines spaced so close  
together that, while they look OK on the screen, when printed they  
create the same effect as a fillstyle=solid, fillcolor=black.
So I tried also adding hatchsep=[various amounts:  according to the  
Latex Graphics Companion, the default is 4pt, so I tried 8, 18, and  
50].  This had no visible effect on the outcome.  Any suggestions on  
how to get more spaced-out vertical lines for a fill?
