I did some investigating in the changelogs, and saw that 228012 
addresses this issue, which was closed in 1:41.3b-1.

Was the solution to the bug to simply comment out the display line in 
a2ps.cfg?  It appears the bug was closed by commenting out the line, and 
removing the '-Pdisplay' functionality.

When you uncomment it, you get the error above.  What is going on?
