Black-Filled Graphs on NeXT Mma 2.2

Mma 2.2 on my NeXTstation has maintained an annoying tradition from earlier  
versions--that is, it will present some plots OK on-screen; however, the  
printout appears with the plot TOTALLY blackened--including the frame and  
labels. This behavior appears upon a write to the previewer as well as to  

The strange thing is that the plots will cut-and-paste correctly into other  
applications. Also, if I just print a selection the graph will generally print  
OK. Sometimes resizing the plot makes the problem go away--and reappear on  
another plot!

Anyhow, given that occasionally I'd like to be able to print out entire  
notebooks without an inordinate amount of fussin' and fightin', can anybody  
explain this strange behavior and what can be done to fix it?

Thanks much,
