Summary:  problem export Data with coordinates to Postscript

Original Submission:  I am using skencil with the GeoObject add-on together 
Shape files on linux SuSe 8.1. 

I try to export to Postscript (Save as Postscript) which seems to be EPS. All 
is fine, but I cannot open the exported file with other graphic programs as 
gimp or display or xv 

This is the original header, created by skencil.  

%!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0

%%Pages: 1
%%BoundingBox: -6 0 3545646 5785086
%%Extensions: CMYK
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: (atend)
%%DocumentNeededResources: font NimbusSanL-Bold
%%DocumentNeededResources: font NimbusSanL-BoldCond

When I change the line parameter for BoundingBox: 

(original with Gauß-Krueger coordinates)
%%BoundingBox: -6 0 3545646 5785086 

to the 'real' pixel amount and also change the order, 
which means changing manually from portrait to landscape 
it works.
%%BoundingBox: -6 0 595 842

To handle ps outputs using the GeoObject add-on like this doesn't seem to be 
very elegant. It would be nice, if the %%BoundingBox: could be adapted, so 
other graphic programs can read and edit the Postscript files.

  thanks for you help
