Postscript dumps of frame output history.

   I'm trying to dump an application frame output to a postscript stream (the
   frame display functions are presentations with incremental redisplay).  I thought
   that all I would have to do is call the display functions again with
   output to the postscript stream.  But CLIM seems to be trying to 
   redisplay the output history on the new stream (Is it acceptable 
   to change the stream on an output history?  Doesn't seem
   like it would be although it partially worked once.)

   And I get this error.  What am I doing wrong.

It looks to me like you created the output records on one stream, and
then used REPLAY to try to replay them onto a different stream, namely
the PostScript stream.  Unfortunately, you can't do this.

The reason you can't is that output records have their size measured
for the stream they are created on.  For example, text style metrics
are going to be completely different on a PS stream than they are on
some X terminal.
