hi joachim,

i think everything works out ok up to there. i had to specify the  
paper size explicitly since i have my default set to lettersize, but  
the following produced the expected results for me:

latex test.tex
dvips -t a4 test.dvi -o one.ps
psnup -d -2 one.ps two.ps

however then it seems that ps2pdf and pstopdf have difficulty with the  
size of two.ps - to make an a4 pdf i had to explicitly specify the  

ps2pdf -sPAPERSIZE=a4 two.ps

hope that helps,

ps. if you're not oppsed to switching to pdf earlier in the workflow,  
look at pdfnup, a wrapper for the pdfpages package. it's been  
mentioned on the list a few times, but rightfully so - it's one of the  
most useful scripts around, i find: http://go.warwick.ac.uk/pdfjam
