did you ever try 

  texexec --mode=demo s-pre-61 

using 'layers' is rather robust (no duplicate pages and such); 

Some of the older presentation styles build the pages stepwise, they use either boxes, or buffers (i must look into it, but there is also one that plugs into the otr; in your case, collecting in a box and uncopying it is probably the best method.
