Ok, you were right of course. I forgot one of the map files when

E:\mirror\TeX\Fonts\cm-super>dvips -j0 -Pcm-super test -o
This is dvips(k) 5.86e Copyright 2001 Radical Eye Software (www.radicaleye.com)
'DVIcopy 1.5 output from TeX output 2001.10.15:1931' -> test.ps
<texc.pro><t1.enc><ts1.enc><texps.pro>. <sfrm1000.pfb>[1]

And this time it is ok using '-j0' .
