Hm, strange. OTOH Windows apps often do something "across" standards  
so it might be the case that some GS versions don't like the file but  
I recall opening it properly also on GNU/Linux, where GS was the engine.

Right. I discussed already with the author of this file about the  
methods to improve efficiency of this publication but of course  
everyone has to find the time to do something for non-profit. Knowing  
how many problems I have finding time, I can't blame anybody else. I  
can be only grateful that somebody was able to do something at all.
