I did that, but am not enough kopmetent to see what and how. I.e., that
was part of my question, and still is, if someone knows:
I've just manged to test the new TeX downloads with the same file, which
uses gasstex.sty, for drawing abstract machine diagrams (Turing machines, etc).
The results are the same: gwTeX draws properly the lines with simpdftex,
TeXLive does not. gastex.sty (gasstex package) is included in both, gwTex
It makes me think that the problem(s) is (are) similar, if not the same as
with the beamer package.
