Not quite right .pdf generation

I have come back to lout after a long absence doing other things. I
want to say that 3.17 is a great advance over the 3.08 that RedHat
distributes its Linux 5.2

I have the unenviable task of doing some forms. I don't get to make
them up. I have to duplicate them. The file below is part of that

I seem to have found a problem. Probably through my own doing.
It is with what I call signature lines. They should look like this:

[Signature]            Person's Name     Boss
Approving Authority     Typed Name       Title

lout test > test.ps             generates a perfect .ps file

lout -PDF test > test.pdf       doesn't

ps2pdf test.ps test.pdf         generates a perfect .pdf file

I am using lout 3.17 and ghostscript 5.50 on a pretty stock
RedHat Linux 5.2 system.
