I had a similar problem but with a PS-file generated from a LaTex 
source. The point was that the EPS-files refered by the LaTex source 
were at PS level 2 while the PS file created from the document was at 
level 1. The result was that all the EPS-pictures where black&white. 
After I created a PS file at level 2 from the document everything was OK.

Hope this gives a clue.
