Hi Josh,

  That patch seems to fix it, almost. I can see the Postscripts
generated with Shift + Left-Click just fine (with GGV on my
Fedora Core 3 Linux distribution). But the PS files generated with
Shift + Middle-Click or Shift + Right-Click just end up blank white
pictures. This ofcourse may or may not be because of your patch, I
don't know whats causing them.

- Mani.
