A sample EPS file

Description of problem:

After some recent yum updates, I'm unable to view a postscript file using any
of the tools available (gv, evince). I've tried postscript files generated
using latex/dvips as well as those generated directly from gnuplot. Having used
latex and authoring/publishing tools on Linux for more than 9 years, this
instability has shocked me. With gv, all pages are displayed blank (the right
number of pages are displayed though). With evince, it is stuck in loading. On
another f9 machine with the same version of gv, I don't have a problem. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a postscript or an encapsulated postscript file using gv or evince.
I've attached a sample one.

Actual results:

All pages are displayed blank.

Expected results:

Additional info: I have attached a sample eps file.
