The problem was worked out just adding to my ps-print settings the following

        ps-footer-font-family 'Times

, so it was certainly related to the default footer font family that should be,
I think, Helvetica.  So there must be a global problem in my system (Debian
Sid) with that font, although I don't know what and would be curious to know.
It is so also explained why the problem arised as well with old ps-print files
and, as well, when simply using ps2pdf to convert them to pdf format.

Thanks to anyone that helped.
