I'm afraid I can't reproduce or explain this.  I expect it gets stuck in 
follow_read_stream ().

The conversion can take a while - obviouslly it depends on the length of the 
stream and the type of conversion.  The only effect on this my patch should 
have had is to increase the conversion time for ASCII (it will now do the 
non-printable-characters conversion twice).  If the conversion doesn't finish 
in the time it used to, then there is definitely a problem.

I am suprised that such a problem exists, since the only code which I added 
relates to postsript printing - the rest is just a rehash of what was already
