I find that printing from Acroread produces some postscript that ghostscript
doesn't like.  This may be a bug in either package, I don't know.

In any case, ghostscripts starting at about 4.0 (I think) can print pdf
files natively.  Skip the acroread step, and just ghostscript it directly. 
(I'm not sure magicfilter can handle this on its own though!)

Good luck,
