This is what intrigued me somehow, so I checked everything once again  
and it turns out that on the G4 I have version 3.6.4 whilst on the  
iMac I have version 3.6. This is almost too easy and so embarassing.  
Sorry for wasting everybody's time :-(

In my defence I must say that with quite a few other programmes I  
started doing did tests with, I couldn't use psfrag because the wrong  
filter was being used and no labels were present in those PostScript  
files. It would be nice, in the long run, if the old behaviour when  
printing into a PostScript could be restored in OS X. On the other  
hand, it's been quite some time since I've last used psfrag, this was  
on an Amiga actually, so I don't really know if this has ever really  
worked on the Mac....

Anyways, thanks for taking the time! Take care.

Ciao, Thomas
