I have managed to get around the problem by doing the job in two steps.   Write
a file to disk, then print the file from there.

However, I have another issue that's even more of a puzzle.

I am attempting to use gs 8.15.3 on Fedora Core 6 to rip and print an
11x17 document on a HP LaserJet 5100.

My commandline is as follows:

 gs -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=lj5mono -r1200 -sPAPERSIZE=11x17 -dCOLORSCREEN
 -dDITHERPPI=150 -sOUTPUTFILE=temp.xyz inputfile.pdf -c quit

This gives me a file temp.xyz, which I then send to the printer with this

lpr -Plp2 temp.xyz

My final printed output includes only the bottom half of the original 11x17
pdf.  inputfile.pdf is 11"wide and 17" long.  When I print temp.xyz I
get the bottom 8.5" on my paper.  I have tried passing various -o options
to lpr but none of them make any difference.

What am I missing?
