Graphic Bugs: Large circle

Graphics Bug:

Show[
	Graphics[
		Circle[{0,0},20],PlotRange->{{18,22},{-2,2}}
	]
]

generate PostScript errors.

This is a bug in Student Mac version 2.1. It generate error or PowerMac 
6100 running Student v.2.2 as well.

If it does not generate error on your machine, try very larger circle and see
what happens. I suspect eventually it will generate PostScript error.

(of course, depending how large the graphic primitive you use start to 
generate errors, it may be dubbed hardware/software limitation than a 
bug, but in the Mathematica language ideal, it should not generate 
error however large the circle)

( WRI technical support have acknowledged that this doesn't work)
