[tex-k] dvips problem?

I have recently reported a problem with ps2pdf (i.e., ghostscript) to
the ghostscript people, as a PS file (http://erw.dsi.unimi.it/ERW.ps)
was not converted correctly.

The ghostscript developers, however, told me that the PostScript file is
not well-formed:

The file has bad DSC comments and wrong /CropBox value:
[ /CropBox [36 36 293 79] /PAGES pdfmark 
To produce correct PDF you need to disable pdfmark operator and set the
page size manually.

gswin32c -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite 
  -c "save pop<</pdfmark/cleartomark load def<</PageSize[595
  -f ERW.ps

The file has been generated by dvips(k) 5.86. Is this the right place to
report a bug?

Thank you,


P.S.: Answers by email, please.
