The whole page is turned, as you can see if you add a title or more

In addition, xdvi issues a ghostscript error message.

I'm pretty sure this is a problem of an incompatibility of sciposter and
hyperref.  Since hyperref is more general, I'm reassigning this to
texlive-science which contains sciposter.

This does not at all mean this bug will be solved by the Debian
maintainers of TeXLive. This is clearly beyond what we can care for.
Please ask the author of sciposter, or ask on a general TeX Mailing
