I just imported as vectors into 1.2.1 with GS 8.31. The only issue with the 
import is the curved arrow lines in the middle is stair stepped, but a one 
minute fix to make perfect.

It also seems to display perfectly in GSview.

In other words, try an updated GS. We recommend 8.1x whereever possible.

Hope that helps,
