I think there was a misunderstanding.  This is precisely what I did in my
previous message:

1. Open my file ~/Scripts/R/pkgs/diveMove/src/R/timbyact.R, which is the
   function in my attachment, only a few lines long.  I should note that
   the failure occurs with any file or buffer that I print.
2. C-u ps-print-buffer and saved it to (thanks Jochen)
3. Opened with gv.

So that last step gave me the error lines like the one I showed.

Yes, everything prints fine outside Emacs, and it has been since I first
configured my system.  It's only stuff that I print with ps-print in Emacs
that stopped working in the last few days.

Now I just found out that print-buffer prints without errors, but...the
left margin is cut off by one column, the right margin looks fine.  It
smells as if this might be related to the ps-print error (maybe the
setpageadvice message?)
