This is the same bug that cropped up in your last post -- it is a

truncation bug in backend ps. 1.4g isn't doing it for us... For

testing I jacked up all the 1.4g fmt strings to 1.9g and the line

straightened itself out.

This persistent problem strengthens my belief that the ps backend

should be outputting transformed coords, since we can then precisely

know the size of the rounding error, eg in fractions of a point.
