I did some more testing:

- printing from any KDE application to a PDF or Postscript file works ok.
- watching the PDF or PS file with gv or xpdf shows no problems
- watching the PDF with kghostview seems ok
- watching the PS file with kghostview gives the same error message
   as I mentioned in my original mail:

Then I did some testing with mozilla:
I printed through kprinter to a file. This file was
readable by kghostview without any problems.

Still confusing....
