[NTG-pdftex] another problem -- of pdftex or gs?

the following file caused gs to segfault:


The command I used is:
| gs  -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=nullpage -sOutputFile=/dev/null -dBATCH survey-vn.ps

and gs -v gave:

| GPL Ghostscript 8.01 (2004-01-30)
| Copyright (C) 2004 artofcode LLC, Benicia, CA.  All rights reserved.

The ps file was converted by pdftops from survey-vn.pdf, the
vietnamese translation of the free math font survey by
Stephen G. Hartke, compiled by pdftex. The pdf itself and
the ps converted by acroread didn't cause the problem with
the above command. Another thing to notice is that the
problem doesn't occur with other devices, for example gv
showed the file quite normally, and the device ppm also
works fine.

Maybe some PS guru here (eg Reinhard) can figure out what is
wrong with the ps file?
