There is a bug in Quartz which is triggered by later versions of gs. It 
has to do with multiple fonts of different types and the result is that 
one of th etypes of fonts is not displayed. Have a look at 
ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/comp/macosx/info/doublefonttest-fail.pdf and 
display it with either Preview or Acrobat.
