[XeTeX] pstricks / pst-labo and xelatex

Dear all,

I have a problem using pst-labo with XeLaTeX.
Here is a minimal example:



I get the error message I posted below. A PDF is produced, but only  
the "liquid" in the tube is rendered, not the tube itself.
It works fine with latex->dvips->ps2pdf, but I prefer using XeLaTeX  
for several reasons.
I have already added the -dNOSAFER option in dvipdfmx.cfg and made the  
gs link point to gs-noX11, but the problem persists.

By the way: I´m using MacTeX 2013 on Snow Leopard, and it used to work  
with earlier versions of MacTeX.

What may be the problem?

Thank you very much in advance,
