[OS X TeX] Unknown Graphics Extension

I have just tried typesetting a paper which I am pretty sure worked OK 
before, but with texLive 2004 etc, I am getting messages of the form 
(when typesetting with TeX + Ghostscript)

! LaTeX Error: Unknown graphics extension: .Sketch.ps.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.127 ...ics[width=1.0in]{Sashikumar02.Sketch.ps}}

It seems the name a.b.ps is confusing it, where it thinks that the 
extension is .b.ps instead of .ps (its looking at the first "." instead 
of the last "."). Any ideas how to get around this (apart from renaming 
the files, which I don't really want to do as I am working on this with 
someone else)?

Best wishes
