Oh, I see. Separation of PostScript is not a quite easy issue. And I
think, there are some problems in the use of setcustomcolor and
customcolorimage in the original xpdf code. As far as I remember, a
collegue of mine gave me some hints in 2007 and I uploaded a patch to
xpdf to make ps output separable which was never inserted. But because
PostScript is not my favorite subject, I didn't care. If You're
interested, I can look if I can find it again, adapt it to the actual
code and we can work together to get it running.
