I've noticed two problems with the postscript backend with today's svn. Running the basemap examples and saving to an eps or ps file:
1) dotted lines (the meridians and parallels on the basemap) show up as solid
2) line and text colors are wrong - if a contour plot is created, any lines or text that are then plotted after that show up with the same color as the end of the colormap (blue for a red-->blue colormap).
I'll try to build a concise example that shows this later on today.
