I'm puzzled by this - "week.ps" looks fine on my system - displays at
the proper size, Letter size paper.

How large is "too large"? Twice the size of the bit of paper? Or just
spilling off the page a little bit?

You are using jpilot 0.99.7 - try upgrading to the latest, 0.99.8
(with patches), and see whether that makes a difference - there are a
number of changes to the PostScript code produced by jpilot.

I suspect its something in your printing subsystem/settings from
ghostscript, but can't tell what. Is anything else printing strangely?
