It used to work on 8.63 and before!!!!
Comment 3 Ray Johnston 2009-02-12 14:42:48 PST
This was fixed by rev 9452 which, unfortunately did not make the 8.64 release.
Comment 4 Ray Johnston 2009-02-12 14:43:32 PST
Created attachment 4794 [details] gdevbit.c.patch This is the fix.

The next scheduled release is August. We may do a interm release sooner than that, but this isn't decided.

I can confirm the fix, but the attached patch is broken. I have simply replaced base/gdevbit.c by the file from trunk (diff is VERY similar) and it worked. Tested with the test case of the Ubuntu bug report (https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ghostscript/+bug/331127) and also being able again to print on the HP Color LaserJet 2600n with Rick's driver. Thanks, Rick, for reporting this, and thanks, Ray, for supplying the patch.
