Various people mailed or posted that I should add the following line near the
top of the file to be printed:

/setscreen { pop pop pop } bind def

(actually prepending it has worked so far.

Eventually I also got a reply form sun that patch #100409-02 fixes this

'professionals' at sun is usually a couple of days behind the 'mere users' on
the net)
