This is a ghostscript error message. I suspect that gs is receiving bad
postscript (perhaps using fonts that are not installed?) and is bailing out.

This message came from a doc printed from StarOffice on a remote machine, no?
Looks to me like a font that the StarOffice font is not being embedded when
it should be. You might try capturing the output of SO and examining it in
your editor to see if there are in fact fonts embedded in it.

Sorry, but I confused by these several messages. Could you summarize the
current state of affairs in a single message please?
