This is a highly annoying feature of FrameMaker Postscript, but I cannot see an 
easy way to turn it off.  I have developed the following sed fragment which you 
can use to convert the Frame PostScript into something which will print on an A4 
PostScript printer such as an HP 4M:

	sed -e 's/ 612 792 / 595.3 841.9 /' sourcefile.ps | lpr

Hope this helps,

- Andrew
