It could very well be a problem with the ALW-16/600, but I don't think
it could be a low-memory problem (or if it is then there's nothing that
can be done about it) -- the machine has 32MB of RAM installed (the
maximum supported).  When I ran the PPST test on it the VM status "at
start" was "21,449,528 bytes out of 21,591,808" so it should have plenty
of VM available for even a document as rich as the Lout User's Guide.

It is apparently running PostScript Level 2 version 2014.106.

I don't have a hard disk attached for font caching (perhaps I should)...

At some point soon I'll be upgrading the netatalk package on my server
and hopefully then I'll be able to talk to the printer with EtherTalk
PAP instead of the rather brain-dead LPD implementation that's in it
that I'm using now, and hopefully then I'll be able to get PostScript
error messages back from it....
