This is actually ps2pdf rendering everything correctly. What you're
seeing is the white outline of the box on a black background, just as
a normal (black-on-white box) will have a black outline. Try

  @PageEnclose { black @Color @Box paint { black } white @Color @Body }

to get the desired result.
