I think Ghostview has the idea of a 72 DPI resolution screen. It
probably depends on the printer's resolution whether the PS file is
chosen to have 300, 600, 1200 DPI resolution. Preview knows about the
actual screen resolution and does not count in pixels but in
dimensions, i.e. it tries to display a document at 90, 100, 300 % of
its actual size.
I remember that you can set MacGhostview to display a document at 288
DPI. This will bring you the Preview like view.
