Plot is innocent

Thanks to those who tried my "buggish feature of Plot (???)" and found that
it worked fine on their system.  Particular thanks to Ross Moore in
Australia, who showed us how to verify the PostScript code.  The code
produced by Mma was completely correct.

I'm sorry that the answer is trivial.  At the time I posted the question we
had tried it on several LaserWriters, but they were all early small memory
models.  When we switched to a LaserWriter II NT, our examples suddenly
started working-  all they needed was more memory in the LaserWriter.  With
three curves and three long equations in the legend, the II NT began to
fail.  Then we connected to a QMS PS 1700 with prodigious internal memory,
and all was well again.  The mystery, if there is one, is why 30 or so
characters overload the LaserWriter memory.

I wish the old LaserWriters had told us "Out of memory" instead of
"PostScript language error".
