The tread mentioned PaperSize, not PageSize ..

My config.ps starts (I mean, the '@' lines) with:

@ A4size 594.99bp 841.99bp
@+ ! %%DocumentPaperSizes: a4
@+ %%PaperSize: A4

(which is the one recommended in dvips.info; don't remember editing it,
this is on a machine I configured in a rush _ maybe just with  
texconfig or the like)

and it does exactly what dvips.info (ie, `info DVI-to-Postscript`)  
says it should:

the ps-file will indeed contain
%%DocumentPaperSizes: a4
	(in the initial comments) , and
%%PaperSize: A4
	(in the final Setup)
