[tex-k] dvips(k) 5.999 creates corrupted ps files with specific options

When using long paths, the produced ps file is corrupted:


This command produces a ps file in which the following code is corrupted
(the closing parenthesis is missing):

TeXDict begin 6889347 995423 1000 600 600

Adding the missing parenthesis manually fixes the problem.

When using short paths, it works:

dvips latexdrawTmpPic1556099770936.dvi

I worked with dvips(k) 5.998 (on Linux). The problem appears with
dvips(k) 5.999 (on Windows 10 at least).

The LaTeX document I use (that I compile with latex) is simply:




\psscalebox{3.5277777 3.5277777}{$hello$}
