I looked at the list of bug fixes before writing and I found that the only thing close to it is this

 o	postscript() was not always ignoring .Postscript.Options in
	the workspace (where it should not have occurred).

but I must admit I did not understand whether it had anything to do with this bug report.

Thanks

Simone
