I can reproduce this error with TeXShop 1.41 in Tiger, Mac OS X  
10.4.3, when the Distiller is set to Ghostscript. TeXShop and  
Ghostscript do not fail when I use golfer.eps or tiger.eps from  
Ghostscript's examples, it seems that the use of PostScript text in  
the EPS file causes the failure.



There's no sense in being precise when you don't
even know what you're talking about.
