Solaris, MMA 3.0, and Postscript


When I run the following code on MMA 3.0 on a Solaris system
-----------
Display["fred33.eps", Plot[x,{x,1,5}], "EPS"]

$TextStyle = {FontFamily -> "Times", FontSize->7 } 

Display["fred35.eps", Plot[x,{x,1,5}], "EPS"]
-----------
I get the first graph displayed, followed by the following messages:
-----------

LinkObject::linkd: 
   LinkObject['/usr/local/mathematica/Syst<<38>>nder' -mathlink , <<1>>, 1]
     is closed; the connection is dead.

LinkObject::linkd: 
   LinkObject['/usr/local/mathematica/Syst<<38>>nder' -mathlink , <<1>>, 1]
     is closed; the connection is dead.

Out[1]= -Graphics-

along with a core dump.
Strangely enough, the program runs FINE on a Windows version of mma3.0 and
works if Courier replaces Times (but bombs with Helvetica as well as Times).

Is this a Solaris specific bug or might we have the system installed
incorrectly?  

Thanks in advance
