Endless copies printed from printing a single copy

 Endless copies printed from printing a single copy

OK, this is a weird problem.  I am running linux, and have been
routinely been printing from wordperfect 7 to my BJC-600 by printing
with a postscript printer driver that comes with WP (e.g. Apple
Laserwriter, but I also used others) and then have my print filter (I
use apsfilter) recognize the PS output and fee it through ghostscript.
I have ghostcript 5.03, which I got as a contib RPM.  THings were
working fine till one day I had to send out a bunch of letter each with
a different salutation, so I was editing, printing, editing, printing,
etc.  Now, this problem came up:  WHen I print, things print fine, but
then I get a page saying "Error:/rangecheck in .installpagedvice", the
Operand stack, the Dictionary stack, and then the current file position,
which is after the EOF line.  And then, get this, it starts all over
again -- reprints the file, reprints the error message, and on an on.  

I tried printing this to a file, and then printing it from ghostview.
Same thing!  Rpinting through ghostscript is fine from other appliations
(i.e. from netscape).  So I suppose one would just be saying this is a
WP printer driver problem.  However, it was not happening before.  And
also, if it is a driver problem, is there something in the error message
that may point out what the problem may be?

Thanks in advance
