I would also try to generate a new PostScript file from th old one. Try
`convert' (part of imagemagick) and ps2ps.  You never know.

If those fail, try converting to PDF and submitting that (`convert'
again, and `ps2pdf', or even Adobe Acrobat if you have to).

I had a problem with figures to an American Geophysical Union journal
last winter (JGR) because my PostScript colours wre in RGB and they
wanted CMKY.  What a mess!
