Bug#649909: ghostscript: ps2pdf generates broken XMP

Package: ghostscript
Version: 9.04~dfsg-3
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/ps2pdf

When run on the attached file, ps2pdf generates invalid XML (and hence,
invalid XMP) on line 9 of the metadata by inserting a character
reference ().  That character is not allowed in XML and evince
complains when trying to read the XMP metadata.  The broken PDF is
included as well.
