KDE Printing Broken

I recently upgraded to KDE 3.2.3 using KDE for Redhat's 
(http://kde-redhat.sourceforge.net/) RPMs and printing from KDE apps stopped 
working.  Everything else (Mozilla, WordPerfect, OpenOffice, etc.) prints 
fine.  When I try to print from any KDE app the print dialog works properly 
but ghostscript errors out (see below).  I can print using kprinter from 
other apps without a problem (e.g. calling kprinter from mozilla works - 
produces output from the printer as expected) so the difficulty would appear 
to be in kde/qt's postscript output or in ghostscript.  

Here is the ghostscript error from var/log/cups/error_log:

I am using (mostly) RH 8.0 with the following:

	KDE 3.2.3
	qt 3.3.2
	CUPS 1.1.17
	foomatic 2.0.2
	ghostscript 7.07

qt is set to not embed fonts (in ~/.qt/qtrc).

I don't even know what the ghostscript error above means so any help would be 
much appreciated.
