It was meant to be a joke - take memo to self, never joke on e-mail -
too confusing!

The whole problem is that the current PostScript output doesn't
contain the DSC (Document Structuring Convention) comments and
constraints that allow other programs to encapsulate it, reset
margins, etc.

The only thing I've thought of that might help would be to:

 - save the jpilot output to a file (eg jpilot1.ps)

 - run 'ps2ps' on it: ps2ps jpilot1.ps jpilot2.ps

 - this gives you a file with an extra blank page on the end, but it
   does at least now conform to the DSC; if you load this into 'gv'
   you can mark the first page and then 'save marked pages' to get a
   final 'jpilot3.ps' file which is what you wanted in the first
