I was just able to extract the problematic pages into a smaller
document, tar-file attached.  Two large figures are created

    @Location {Display}
    15c @Wide @Scale @IncludeGraphic "blatt2/receiver-proc.eps"
  @End @Figure

    @Location {Display}
    15c @Wide @Scale @IncludeGraphic "blatt2/transmitter-proc.eps"
  @End @Figure

Those figures are followed by a also quite large figure on the following

Only the first one of the two figures appears in the output.  Even if
the order is rearranged (so it's not a question of one image being too
large).  The problem seems to be solveable by putting a @LLP in front of
both @Figures.  Again some problem with the paragraph-macro @PP?

Page optimization is turned off.  Makefile is included, which makes sure
that lout is run twice.

lout -v :
