Sorry to butt in here, but I tried to use hpdj device in my dj500-filter for
HP dj600c printer, and am getting the following error (on the paper insteads
of the actual output from ghostview or lyx):
Unrecoverable error: rangecheck in .setdevice  Operand stack:  --nostringval--

Has anyone a word of wisdom on what am I doing wrong?
BTW, I can run dj500-filter and dj500c-filter without any problems on the same
system using same files under same applications.
